World Class Kings Magazine: Hello Pierce, thank you for taking the time to Interview with us. What inspired you to do pageants?
Pierce: I have always seen myself as the person willing to try something new. Having excelled in academia and having a passion for volunteerism and community outreach, I was scouting out new way to give back or give of myself in a meaningful manner. This pageant was then introduced to me by a previous Ms. Teen title holder as one that would provide that different avenue which would provide not only professional development but also the platform on which I can use to give back to my country; so, I applied; and here I am.
World Class Kings Magazine: What do pageants mean to you?
Pierce: It means doing more and being more. It’s a means by which persons can use for not only social but profession advancements whilst giving back to their communities, country, and the world at large.
World Class Kings Magazine: What makes you a winner?
Pierce: My confidence which strongly influences whatever I’m doing. My mantra in life is “If you have no confidence in yourself, you a twice defeated in the race of life; with confidence, you have won before you have started.
World Class Kings Magazine: Please tell us about your platform, appearances, and achievements.
Pierce: I am a science teacher by profession and as such Education and Health is the platform which I would like to focus my service. I am currently sitting a Masters of Education and through the theoretical exposure that this has given me, it has influenced my educational philosophy which drive my intrinsic motivation to assist in the educational advancement of our youths, those who have failed and are struggling to complete the standard educational system and those who lack the necessary resources that make the transition through the system difficult.
World Class Kings Magazine: What part of the competition you find most exciting?
Pierce: The trainings leading up towards the final night. I enjoy learning and love the exposure I have garnered during the process.
World Class Kings Magazine: What is your secret technique to connect with judges?
Pierce: If I tell you it wouldn’t be a secret now would it. (smiles). I will make them believe in me as much as I believe in myself.
World Class Kings Magazine: How often do you practice your pageant walk?
Pierce: I have what others might term as a walking issue as such I have to try and dedicate a minimum 30 minutes per day or just every time I see a straight line.
World Class Kings Magazine: How do you keep your self-esteem high?
Pierce: Life experiences have taught me how to truly believe in myself. My mom when I was younger always said to me, there is nothing that I cannot do. This has left such a mark that I have applied to all domains of my life.
World Class Kings Magazine: How do you stay up to date on current World events?
Pierce: I try my best to be an active reader. I must admit, it’s a work in progress but the good thing is that progress is being made.
World Class Kings Magazine: What do you plan to do if you win?
Pierce: Utilize the opportunity that this pageant would have given me to try and make a difference no matter how small it may seem, I mean it only takes a spark to get the fire going, and I’m hoping to be that spark.
World Class Kings Magazine: What legacy would you like to leave behind?
