WOMEN INSPIRED | Becky Knol, Creator of Miss Dynamic USA, Shares Her Passion for Pageantry



HARDWORKING WOMAN TO KNOW

GENEVA–Determined to keep positivity and optimism in her children and grandchildren’s lives, Becky combined her resourcefulness and outgoing personality to create Miss Dynamic USA in January 2020. Born and bred in Batavia and a 29-year resident of Geneva, she wanted to provide an opportunity for people of all ages in the community to feel amazing about themselves while also giving back in the process.


“The pageant is unique in that the focus is on building confidence, teaching life skills such as public speaking and interview skills, incorporated in a fun, positive pageant experience,” Becky says. “Charity is an important part of our pageant, 50% of the charitable donations go to the winner’s chosen charity and the other 50% is given to the pageant’s chosen charity, which varies depending on need.”




As her kids are older, it is a bit easier to enlist their help to coordinate the mini-training pageant for girls ages 6-7, as well as divisions for first-timers or experienced from ages 8 through 99. Unlike most pageants, there is no swim wear or fitness portion of the competition, the goal is to find someone that is confident, personable, poised, and genuine. Authenticity, heart, and soul – a beautiful person to the core.


“I love that I get to see things from concept to reality while connecting with others,” Becky says. “My goals for myself are to keep growing my business as well as on a personal level.”




Becky manages time well, remaining old school with pen and paper to calendar, and always find times for personal fun such as playing games, shopping, serving as a Girl Scout leader. She also fully appreciates local history museums and researching Genealogy and hopes to try some new adventures – starting with taking a dance class in the very near future!


“Know that life is short - and no matter what things work out – they may not be how you expect, but they do work out – so, continue to stretch yourself,” she adds. “Always have a dream and stay flexible, as change will happen on your journey. Change can also be a great opportunity to open unexpected possibilities.” –Kristen Kucharski
