Pageantry magazine interviews U.S.A. Ambassador pageant founders Barbara and Kristin Thurston. The U.S.A. Ambassador Pageant is a charity driven organization that promotes success through leadership, integrity, character, and confidence to its pageant contestants. Established in 2010, the pageant was created to promote each contestant’s individual strength and to encourage its queens, contestants, and families to be involved in their communities to serve as ambassadors. To date, the U.S.A. Ambassador Pageant has donated to over 20 different charity organizations across the country and continues to support the Big Brothers Big Sisters organization which serves as their National Charity Beneficiary.
