Where Smarts Meets Confidence!
Beauty pageants are widely popular for providing a platform for young girls and women to express their beauty and qualities such as self-esteem and social skills. While maintaining the aesthetics of a traditional pageant, the Brains & Beauty team decided to add an educational component. Our contestants will have the opportunity to compete in "dual" categories, beauty and academic, as well as titleholders receiving dual prizes. Parent company Feli Kiwi not only believes in showcasing beauty talents, but intellectual talents as well!

Serving on both sides of the fence, Lala is not only qualified, but uber excited to share this amazing experience with New York's cream of the crop, our trailblazing Young Ladies! Lala's pageant career started off as a concurrent Miss Teen New York judge. Along with making new connections and gaining worthy insight, Lala applied these golden nuggets to her everexpanding network and was able to afford her daughter the same privilege, which led to the birth of Brains & Beauty. Lala also served on various executive boards in local schools where she coordinated diverse events and executed agendas, garnering several service awards along the way, so she's quite familiar with the dynamics of parent-student-community worker relationships. Today, the Brains & Beauty team provides a platform for young girls to express their beauty chops and smarts with some cool prizes to go along with!
