Teen Pageant Queen declares "Pretty" is an action word in

buzzz worthy. . .



Whether it's picking up a grocery tab, cutting an elderly neighbor's grass or paying it forward by investing in someone's future, a random act of kindness can change someone's day or life for the better.

Pageant queen Aria Austin, 16 is embracing the lasting impact of good deeds through the "Pretty Is As Pretty Does" campaign.

The "Pretty Is As Pretty Does" campaign  is a safe and positive and speaks to the need to spread love and kindness.  Participants are encouraged to share ways in which they are spreading goodwill  (either online and offline) by posting videos or photos of themselves performing a kind act or simply being a blessing to others.The slogan is derived from a Southern saying that means outward beauty should be a reflection of inward beauty.

The campaign fits right in with Austin's platform of empowering girls to be beautiful on the inside and outside.

Austin said what motivated her to take part in the challenge  are the amount of online challenges that poke fun of people for not being perfect.

" I don't believe a lot of the online challenges are good. They are trying to promote a standard o beauty that's saying  that flaws make you ugly.  I wanted to do #piapd to promote inner beauty and acts of kindness to make the world a better place."

Sensitive to the negativity many of her peers face on a daily basis, Austin said she also desired to do something that would boost their confidence and self-esteem.

"Being pretty is also not just about looks, it about who you are.  Pretty is an action word," adds the rising Junior.

A talented singer in her own right the aspiring entertainer took the concept of "Pretty Is As Pretty Does" a step further and launched a talent contest on Instagram with the same theme, which allows contestants to express their concept of beauty artistically. This contest is also connected to the debut of the web-based series "Model Behavior" which star Aria and her younger sister, Amber.

Participation in the #piapd challenge is easy.  Simply do something kind for another person (the environment or even a cause), document it it by photo or video, post it to a social media platform and tag at least 10 or more people asking them to do the same.
