“Elmo, Cookie Monster, Abby Cadabby, Big Bird…” Olivia Marie Kapron names off her friends from Sesame Street as she sits in her living room; her proud Mom, Nicole Kapron, talking quietly with her about her favorite characters. Olivia is a fun-loving toddler who loves to dance, watch Sesame Street and learn animal sounds at Creative World School in St. Cloud, Florida and singing “The Wheels on the Bus” with her friends. On the weekends, however, she transforms into a pageant queen – wearing sequins and glitter, feathers and ruffles.
Olivia is the current reigning Baby Miss Florida 2019 – previous to earning this title, she was named Baby Miss St. Cloud 2019. Children in the Little Miss Pageant earn their titles by showcasing their talents and personalities. This pageant is considered a “non-glitz” pageant, which places emphasis on young ladies’ inner beauty.
With her curly brown hair shimmering in the sunlight streaming in through the windows of her living room, a sparkling bow placed just so on the top of her head, her eyes sparkle with an impish gleam. Her smile as she talks with her Mommy lights up her whole face – and it is easy to see how she won not only the title of Baby Miss St. Cloud 2019, her hometown, but the title of Baby Miss Florida 2019 in the State Finals of the Little Miss competition.
Olivia’s future in pageants is as bright a gleam as the sequins on her pageant dress, as she shines on the stage in all her finery. Truly, though, the brightest aspect about Olivia is her caring, sweet, and intelligent personality, which the bright stage lights will highlight as she moves on to the National Little Miss competition in Orlando, Florida, in July of this year.
