The Miss America pageant is this weekend. Will you watch? Thousands do and this year it's already getting a lot of attention!
Theresa Vail and her two tattoos. She is Miss Kansas and says she's catching some flack for her two tatoos that will be seen during the bikini contest. We talked about the "stigma" of employers have said still weighs on them when hiring their staff. So why show the tattoos?
Miss Kansas says she is very proud of her tough and doesn't think it should affect her chance at the crown. You see, one is a military insignia... She's a SERGEANT in her state's National Guard, (she is just the second member of the military to compete) and the other is the serenity prayer! Which she says she that helped her get through difficult times, since she has been a child! So why break pageant tradition? She said, "It's all about "empowering women to OVERCOME stereotypes and break barriers. What a hypocrite I would be if I covered the ink. With my platform, how could I tell other women to be fearless and be true to themselves if I can’t do the same?"
