Jessica Byington - Miss Teen International® 2009 - Prelim Evening Gown Winner

People's Choice Award

1.What is your favorite food and why?
Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious! Mary Poppins was right.. it's extraordinary! (Say it... It really does make you feel better!)

2.What according to you is a perfect date?
Curling your eyelashes using an eyelash curler makes your eyes look wider, brighter and makes eyelashes appear naturally longer. If you heat the eyelash curler beforehand using a blow dryer, lashes will stay curled longer - even until the next day! (Works like a charm!)

3.How do you like to spend your weekend?
I am extremely proud to have earned a 4.0 cumulative GPA and to be a designated Presidential Scholar's student at Miami University. Overcoming dyslexia has been quite a difficult journey but has helped me recognize the gifts related to this diagnosis; whereas, most view it only as "a learning disability."

4.When was the last time you went shopping and where to?
I love Sunday - my day to relax, spend quality time with my family, and attend church. Oh, and did I mention our family tradition of eating brunch every Sunday at the Cheesecake Factory?!?! May I suggest the French Toast Napoleon with a glass of freshly squeezed orange juice? Yum!

5.Do you think make-up is important and why?
My good luck charm is something that I received on my crowning night. My sister attached an heirloom cross pin to my sash as a token of good luck. Wearing this pin reminds me that with faith all things are possible.
