Can you introduce yourself ?

Hello, I am 26 years old Yvette Blaess a Cuban ,Puerto Rican , Italian and French military daughter my title in my every day life is Author, International Speaker on ADHD and Dyslexia, Entrepreneur and Model.

How did you get your start?

I was introduced to pageants at a young age when it was sent in the mail to my older sister. Never heard of Pageants before until that mail, In my teens I was reminded again by a magazine I was reading in while in India the cover model was a Miss. As an adult I was volunteers my time at a hospital and one of the ladies I was helping used to compete. After that I did my research and the rest is history! 

What was your most memorable moment in the 2016 Miss World America Competition ?

This may sound typical but walking a national stage for the first time was a favorite memory but throughout the journey of preparation for Miss World America 2016 I teamed up with some of the most incredible talented people that help me grow to the women I am today!

You are the marketing director of Miss Earth California. What motivated you to apply for this role ?

During my time as a contestant in pageant, I was extremely fond of the work behind my directors and why they were doing it. I felt that I could pass that on when I "retire from a Miss"; . I believe in healthy living and paying it forward, and being able to share my knowledge is a wonderful opportunity. The Miss Earth United States is taking off to becoming a beautiful unique pageant and I am blessed to be to help grow our title holders and Contestant with my Director! 

You will compete at Miss California USA in december. How will you prepare the pageant ? 

I will continue to work on me , fine toning myself to give it my all on stage What part of the Miss Califonia USA program are you most looking forward to? I never competed for the USA system at a state level, so I am excited for everything!  We are all unique so what would you say is something that makes you stand out from the other contestants?  To be honest I had a hard time thing about this question because I believe every contestant is unique I can’t stress enough or even heard enough during my competition training “to just be yourself!” So as I am sitting here thinking about this question I text my sister for help and her replay was “can you just say awesome” LOL

If you weren't a pageant girl, what would you want to do? 

What you see is what you get! I do not have a switch off bottom when I am in pageant mode or not. Example my platform is healthy living for ADHD and Dyslexia for pageants. My job in my every day life is finding solutions to help and create tools with ADHD and Dyslexia. I chose to do pageants but I did didn’t choose my platform It is apart of me.

Tell us something that most people don’t know about you?

I do not like eating out! So I love to cook at home and make everything from scratch. I am proud to be a home body! Where do we hope to see you In the next 10 years? I want to come home from a job I created, walk into a loving / beautiful home filled with lavender , a wall full of books and photos of adventure , kissed by a man God has chosen for me with kids I was blessed with and last but not least have the Miss Universe crown and sash in a frame!

Thanks to the beautiful Yvette for the interview. Pageants News wishes you all the very best for Miss California USA pageant.
