If being smart isn’t enough to guarantee success, then what is? Being pretty smart is the key – that is, having passion, commitment, resilience and a firm belief that you can achieve your dreams. So who has been smart and “pretty"? In the pages of Pretty Smart you will find the insights, wisdom and stories from twenty-two former Miss Americas, who are not just pretty but pretty smart, and how they pursued their passions all the way to professional and personal success. With their thoughtful intelligence and insightful eloquence these women shatter the myth that the Pageant is “just a beauty contest.” Their stories, woven into a tapestry of inspiration and wisdom, prove that it takes vision, discipline, drive and, yes, brains to win the crown.
