“You have competition every day because you set such high standards for yourself that you have to go out every day and live up to that”-(Michael Jordan). Since the age of four, softball has always been my favorite leisure activity. However, at the level I competed during my high school career it was not what I would consider a leisure activity. Due to the time commitment required for tournament softball, it was more like a job. It was, however, the type of job that everyone dreams of, a job that I enjoyed almost more than anything.

Everyone knows that Prom is a significant event for teens in high school. Teenagers would spend hours and hours to look for their's perfect dress, shoes, and hairdos for prom. The most important part thing that every teen is worry about is looking for a prom date.

According to Simon Robinson, of the Time International, in “A Pageant with a Purpose”, the twelve contestants that entered the Miss HIV stigma free pageant were competing to show people from around the world, that this disease does not have to make you different. From Robinson’s view description, the reader can gather ideas that using beauty pageants was not the best way to prove that people infected with HIV do not have to be looked at in a different light. In America, we view beauty queens in a very different manner than we do everyday people. They are setup on stage, given a hair and makeup specialist, and their purpose is to be considered perfect. It would seem that the only thing this pageant would bring is more attention to those with HIV, and not in a positive way.
