Beauty pageant lovers will be familiar with Eden Wood, a pageant queen from Arkansas, USA, who started in the industry at a very young age. She’s proof that there are no restrictions on beauty and stands out from a crowd at a time when most kids are more preoccupied with playgrounds and dolls.
As a child, Eden often participated in beauty pageants. Her hardworking nature earned her win after win, and when she was just four years old, she had more than 300 titles to her name. It wasn’t just her physical beauty but her charm that stole the nation’s attention, earning her the moniker of “the most beautiful girl in the country.”
A childhood of glitz and glamour
While most kids were playing with bicycles and swings, Eden grew up in the glamour of the fashion industry. Her new normal included contests, catwalks, and stunning clothing. Often wearing gorgeous makeup and accessories, strutting across stages and theaters for admiring audiences all over.
However, though the fame of her childhood seemed like a dream to many, Eden faced challenges such as being unable to make friends her age or not being able to partake in traditional childhood activities. Rather than innocently playing, she had to deal with the judgment and criticism of others. She showcased resilience far beyond her young years in the face of hatred.
Wood’s days were carefully planned and always busy. She often juggled photoshoots and rehearsals while working with choreographers.
Reality TV appearances
She played Darla in “The Little Rascals Save the Day” and made multiple appearances on the TV show “Toddlers and Tiaras.”
The journey goes on
When she turned six years old, Wood left the world of beauty pageants, but this was only the beginning for young Eden. She always had an ambition to become famous, and at the age of 14, she started working on her first musical album. Her mother, who is her main inspiration and her manager, supports her. It’s clear that Eden’s talents are limitless.
She was the face of the children’s boot brand called Cicciabella, and she even has her own line of clothing and makeup.
Along with a musical album, Eden authored her own book dubbed “From the Cradle to the Throne,” where she discusses all her personal experiences and the insights she gained along the way. She was also highly committed to school and excelled as a hardworking student, but still let loose and attended dances. Somehow, she also has time to dance and play the guitar and drums. The starlet recently graduated high school and is set to go to a university in Arkansas to get a degree in broadcast journalism.
Beyond the spotlight
In 2018, Eden’s journey took her beyond pageantry and into the coveted world of modeling. She made her particularly memorable debut during New York Fashion Week, resulting in a long-lasting career that’s earned her around a hundred thousand dollars.
As she gets older (Wood is now 18 years old), she continues to work hard and provide for her family. It’s clear that the future ahead of her is very bright.
