ROME, N.Y. -- A Rome girl is set to make her debut on national television next week on TLC's "Toddlers and Tiaras."

Brooklyn Bird, 3, has been in dozens of pageants. Her mom sent in a tape to the show earlier this year and got a call back. They filmed the Birds at home in Rome and at a pageant in White Plains in April.

Her mom helps her out with the pageants, but they like doing them for different reasons.

"It's because I like holding microphones, "said Brooklyn.

"I feel like I was never competitive growing up," said Ashley, Brooklyn's mom, "So she really likes to compete. Actually, she'll tell everyone, like I don't force her to do them. It's just, I guess it's my competitive way coming out through her."

Brooklyn says she wants to be both a cowgirl and a veterinarian when she grows up. She'll be on TLC next Wednesday at 8 p.m.
