“Beauty is self-confidence. You can be the most beautiful person in the world, but if you have no self-confidence- it doesn’t have the same effect,” Junior, Zoe Goudarzi, said as she reflected on what beauty is to her. Goudarzi competed in the Ms. Gregg County Competition last Thursday and placed runner-up.

“I am glad that I won the nomination and I was honored to be able to participate in the competition,” Goudarzi responded when asked why she wanted to compete. Although she did not place first, Goudarzi felt that the event was a great learning experience. “I found out that I really like speaking in front of people. Before the competition, I had never really spoken in front of a big crowd, but I felt very comfortable on stage.”

Support is crucial in a competition like Goudarzi was in and she believes that. “I was so overwhelmed by the support of my classmates. It was crazy how loud they were and how much school spirit they showed. It was amazing walking out and seeing everyone cheering me on.”

Memories are very important for the high school experience. While Goudarzi is very humble she has an interesting view on what her favorite memory from the event was. “My favorite memory was beating all of my new friends of course.”

Goudarzi made everyone in Spring Hill proud with the class she displayed during the competition. She set the tone for a great week for Panther Nation.
