Tinseltown lures Crestview senior

“I’ll be working backstage, doing makeup and stuff,” she said. “I’m not actually onstage this year.”

As she prepares for the upcoming show, Michelle has been seeking sponsorships to attend iPOP. She hopes to attract local businesses willing to invest in her dream of becoming a professional entertainer. It’s a big investment, but it’s also an incredible opportunity, Michelle said. It could even propel her to national recognition.

“There are no ‘contestants’ at iPOP! ‘Contestants’ go to beauty pageants,” the iPOP website states. “iPOP! respects each participant as a performer, who attends the event to improve their auditioning and performing skills, perform in front of the leading professionals in the industry, and develop networking skills that will benefit them in the future.”

There’s just no way a price tag could be attached to experience that valuable, Michelle said.
