Middle school girls at Beverlye Magnet school had a visitor today who was wearing a crown and it wasn't a princess.
Miss Alabama 2014 Caitlin Brunell spoke to the group of girls.
She talked about overcoming obstacles.
The girls got to ask any questions they wanted and some took pictures with their new iPads as well.
"I believe everything happens for a reason and everything happens perfect in its own timing and so dream big, go after what you want to accomplish. Don't let circumstances in your life define you or shake you, because you're all amazing and absolutely have the ability to change this world and make a difference,” Brunell said.
Brunell will compete in the “Miss America” pageant on Sunday September 14th.
