BCS student’s outside school activities 

Natalee Mcleod (7) shows her talents in beauty pageants.  

Story by Halie Burnside

   Many students in BCS have lots of talents outside of school. For Natalee Mcleod, she shows her talents in pageants. She first started to compete beginning when she was about 6 or 7 years old. It all started when her mom asked both her and her sister if they wanted to do pageants. Both of them said yes and began competing more and more.  Natalee stated that “...at first it was scary, but once I started doing more, it got less scary and more fun!” Throughout her years, Natalee was able to enjoy the pageants while meeting new people and friends from all over the state and world. From doing pageants, she was even able to make friends with a girl from Russia. Not only has Natalee won many money prizes, she has also won titles as well. Natalee also thinks that beauty pageants can help her talk in front of people and socialize in the future.
