Wheaton beauty queen hoping to be Miss Outstanding Teen of Illinois
When some think of beauty pageants, their mind jumps to what they’ve seen on TV: overbearing moms pushing their – usually young – children to dramatic and damaging levels of competition.
The story of Wheaton Warrenville South’s Olivia Negris’ entry into pageant life is a little different. The first time she entered a pageant was at 17, and it was more the idea her friends and strangers than hers or her mom’s.
“Some girls on my twirl team had tried pageants and done well and they said I should try it,” she said. “Then I was buying a dress one day with my mom and the lady helping us said I should look into it.”
