I had the pleasure of doing hair and makeup for this lovely young girl, Maia Mayeshiro, who was just crowned Miss Hawaii’s Outstanding Teen last night. I airbrushed her as I do most people, and seeing the awe and delight in this young face just made me smile. This is why I do what I do. I love to give people something that they don’t normally do for themselves…an experience that they may not normally have…it really warms my heart. This pageant provides these young girls with scholarships to help further their education so they can achieve success in whatever they choose. She also gets to compete nationally in Florida for the title of Miss America’s Outstanding Teen where she can win even more scholarships.
