What unique characteristics would you say you bring to the competition?
I believe a unique characteristic I bring to this competition is integrity. Integrity by definition is, the condition of being unified, unimpaired, or sound in construction. I want to be someone who doesn’t waver their morals just so they may gain approval or something to benefit themselves. I am a strong independent teenage girl who has beliefs and will stand up for what is right. I believe that in having the Miss Florida Teen USA title you need to have integrity. I know that this is a quality I possess, and with it I will not just go far in this competition, but also in life.

Social media seem to play a major role in pageantry nowadays. Do you think this is advantageous to you? Why or why not?
Social Media is definitely an advantage to anyone who is trying to market something/someone in the 21st century. It is what everyone goes on to see the latest scoop, or gain more information about a person, or an idea. Social Media is something that may be used for good, or for bad. In my case I use my social media for good and to market my modeling, my platform, and to just share memories I make with family and friends. I can get a lot of exposure to my platform Livie’s Closet through social media. It is definitely advantageous for me!
What would you advise any young girl out there who has a dream of being a queen one day?
To any young girl who has a dream of being a queen one day I say there is nothing that is impossible with God. Just two years ago I never would’ve imagined the things I’ve accomplished so far in my modeling career and I thank my mom and mostly God for never letting me quit through the hard times. Modeling has always been my dream, and yes you do have to work hard every day at it but if it is what you really love then all the blood, sweat, and tears are worth it in the end. Never give up on your dreams, never let people tell you that you can’t, because even the word impossible says “I’m possible”.
Thanks to the beautiful Olivia for the interview. Pageants News wishes you all the very best for Miss Florida Teen USA pageant.
