Miss Teen Illinois International®

Sarah Bertrand

What Superhero would you like to be and why?
My favorite word is definitely "fun". What girl doesn't like to have fun? I try to have fun with everything I do; being with friends, shopping, strolling on the beach, competing, or even studying. Enjoying life is what teen years are about; and Im making the most of every day!

What according to you is a true friend?
I LOVE trying out new make-up! This helps me keep up with the current trends in fashion. But if a trend is not so great on me, I let it go. I wash make-up off every night and, I use a TON of moisturizer. I hate having dry skin!

How do you handle criticism?
I take most pride in my current title of Miss Teen Illinois International. Although pageants have made me a better public speaker and boosted my confidence, earning this title has underscored the importance of supporting causes and has focused me on being a better citizen and a community leader.

When was the last time you tried something new?
Friday! What teenager doesnt love Friday? A week of homework, studying, tests, and etc. at school just makes Friday even sweeter! Friday night football games at my school are amazing and I love hanging out with my friends on the weekends.

Do you think crying is a sign of weakness or strength?
Luck is when preparation meets opportunity. No object could ever bring me more luck than my family and friends. Having them to support me and give me honest advice is truly a gift that has prepared me for future opportunities like this pageant.
