Miss Teen California International®

Elise Ellison - 3rd Runner Up - Photogenic Winner

What Superhero would you like to be and why?
Yes!... It is music to my ears when my parents say it.( I can ask for some pretty crazy things) Also when someone says yes, Id like to make the choice to be and Organ Donor I know that the work my family and I do is making a difference.

What according to you is a true friend?
I make sure to always listen to my mom and do what ever she does to look so beautifulafter all she is Mrs. California International.

How do you handle criticism?
I was born into a family of strong beautiful women. My grandmothers, aunts and mother are my examples of the kind of women I aspire to become. Through them Ive learned work ethic, perseverance, unconditional love, and the importance of sisterhood. This legacy is what I take most pride in.

When was the last time you tried something new?
Im one of four kids in my family, it can be hard to get us all together, but on Thursday night you can count on the Ellison family sitting together enjoying the TV show The Office its common for us to laugh all week repeating the lines from the show.

Do you think crying is a sign of weakness or strength?
I have a crystal and gold bracelet that Ive worn on every special occasion in my life. You can bet Ill be wearing it in Chicago this July.
