The Lions Club in Maynooth, Ireland held a dinner, dance fundraiser in conjunction with Addiction Recovery Ireland. Emma Gavin, the Ultimate Miss Worldwide Teen Ireland Ambassador for Live Out Loud Charity was a guest speaker for the Addiction Recovery Ireland one year prior and was asked to return to give a speech about anti-bullying and suicide prevention. The topic of suicide prevention in correlation to substance abuse and recovery is extremely important as substance abuse is the 2nd leading cause to suicide. Emma Gavin and her mother Lorraine Gavin asked if Sherrie Gearheart could speak since Gearheart was in Ireland spreading the message of suicide prevention. After a 2 hour meeting with the President of Addiction Ireland Recovery, Gearheart was asked to give a speech at the gala that night. Later that evening an entire group of Live Out Loud Charity advocates walked into the gala and the mood was set, everyone was excited to see what the sparkly crowns and evening gowns were all about… who were these distinguished guests they asked. Sherrie Gearheart, Miss United Nations & founder of Live Out Loud Charity gave a speech alongside Brittany Gallarneau the Ultimate Miss Worldwide Teen USA Ambassador for Live Out Loud Charity; Emma Gavin the Ultimate Miss Worldwide Teen Ireland Ambassador for Live Out Loud Charity; and Tes Scanlon the Mrs. United Nations 2015 titleholder and Spokesperson for Live Out Loud Charity. The speeches were well received and Addiction Recovery Ireland is now partnered with Live Out Loud Charity. During the night, the Liffey Champion Newspaper photographed the group of titleholders along with the President of the Lions Club which appeared to everyone’s surprise appeared on the cover of the Liffey Champion later that week.

Q. How did you get into pageantry?
A. I was a national championship baton twirler for over 20 years. I competed in national baton twirling pageants and won several titles and stopped competing and became director of a baton twirling team. Wanted to give back to the community through the art of baton. It was not until 10 years ago, I entered my first modeling pageant, surprisingly, I won the title of Classic Ms. Elite and Ms. Classic Florida USA.
Q. What awards and titles do you currently hold?
A. Currently:1. 2015-2016 Classic Ms. American Natural Beauties, Royal Majesty Pageants
2. 2015 Classy Ms. Florida, Pure American Pageants
3. 2015 National Spirit of Pure, Pure American Pageants
Previous titles held: Ms. Classic Florida, Elite USA
Q. What was the experience like for you when you won your title?
A. I have been truly honored and blessed with all my titles. The experience with each one has allowed me to be the best person I can be. My volunteerism has allowed me to also reach out and be a part of amazing organizations as well as all over the state of Florida empowering and engaging children/women to be the best they can be. I am also involved with many events and give back as much as I can each and every day to what is needed in several charitable organizations. With my recent win of my national title, it has allowed me to have a voice with my crown and the vote of confidence needed to do whatever it takes to promote the pageant as well as many platforms across the U.S.A. I am truly blessed as now I can help reach out and attend events in all our states and recently, the best highest achievement and reward was going to Chicago to be a part of the Live Out Loud Charity, the Royal Affair fashion show and walking with both my titles so proudly as well as attend a Model Boot Camp supporting this outstanding cause; created by the fabulous, Sherrie Gearheart.
Q. If you could only name one thing, what do you wish you had known prior to competing in pageants that would have helped you?
A. Just be yourself and show beauty inside and out of who you are!
Q. How has pageantry benefited you in your personal life?
A. It has given me the opportunity to reach out and be a part of building a foundation that allows me to give back and also be a voice for some who cannot. I have also met so many new friends across the world, and teams that working together on projects, exemplifies we all accomplish more! I would not have been able to do this without pageantry in my life and having the self esteem and confidence to be the best I can be.
Q. What is your platform and how did you choose it?
A. I rescued a schipperke-pom later in life. He was 7 years old. His name is Frankie. He was left behind in 2 homes and lived in and out of shelters for most of his life. I am building a foundation on behalf of him “No Dog Left Behind” and will be launching in 2016. I want to be able to help all the dogs who are left behind for their owners to have an opportunity to reach out as an alternative to contact us. We want to ensure these dogs are just not left to fend for themselves.
Q. Who inspires you the most? Why?
A. My late mother inspired me the most. She was sick for 4 years and went to every medical outlet to be diagnosed. It was not until 2 weeks before she passed, a doctor in an emergency room detected and was knowledgeable on what was happening to her. He took the time to conduct all tests and she was not just an “insurance” claim to him. She was strong and beautiful inside and out. My mom never gave up and kept going. When we found out she was in Stage 4 Lung Cancer, her fight to the end was priceless and sharing with her every moment has made me the person I am today.
Q. What advice would you give anyone who might read this article?
A. “At any age, you can make the difference!” I encourage all, no matter what age you are in life, to take a chance and do what inspires you to be the best you can be. I took a chance a little later in life and wanted to become a beauty queen to make a difference. Some expressed, “isn’t too old?” I took this challenge and did not let it come between what I wanted to do. Now, I am launching out and speaking at charitable and modeling events while empowering children/women/men to go forward and seek your dreams!Everyone needs a role model and we come in all ages! It does not stop at any age!
Q. What is the biggest obstacle you have encountered and how have you overcome it?
The biggest obstacle I have overcome is my battle with weight loss and being heart healthy. I always had issues with my weight going up and down through out my whole life. A couple of years ago, I took a chance and went and got my bio-metrics checked.(this was the best thing I ever did)Only to find out that I was a high risk in the majority of the biggest challenges of heart disease, diabetes and cholesterol. I immediately acted upon it and moved forward to exercise, diet, and get all my numbers to a normal range. To date, I have been blessed to keep them and will continue to overcome and be healthy for the rest of my life.
