BIO

Q: What is the craziest thing you have ever done?
A: Last year, while on vacation in Costa Rica, I went on a zip-lining adventure through the rainforest. I was over 350 feet from the ground and it truly felt like I was flying. At a speed of over 60 mph, it was a thrilling and unforgettable experience that I would love to do again one day!

Q: Do you cook and/or bake anything? If so, what are your special dishes?
I love to cook and bake! I come from a big Italian family so my favorite things to make are homemade cannolis and pasta! My baby sister is the "real" chef!

Q: If you were handed 10 million dollars, what would you splurge on?
A: I would save enough money to pay for the college tuition for my sisters and myself. I would buy something special for my parents, a house on the ocean where they could enjoy sunsets. I'm not really a materialistic person, however I would probably splurge on matching diamond bracelets for my sisters and me!

Q: If you could meet one celebrity, who would it be and why?
A: I would love to meet Oprah Winfrey! Ever since I was a little girl I have always wanted to be just like Oprah and have my own talkshow. I would love to pick her brain about all of her successes and how she got started in the entertainment industry!

Q: What is unique about you (something no other contestant can say about themselves)?
A: As a child, I walked with my feet turned inwards. Very few people know that my feet are the reason I am in this pageant today. I had surgery when I was a little girl to correct them, and after that my mother enrolled me in runway school to get my brain to remember to walk straight. I ended up doing my first pageant and won! Ever since then, I have never looked back and my crazy feet are the reason I have made it this far!
