Miss Teen Midwest International®

Riley Wharton

What Superhero would you like to be and why?
My favorite word is love. When we love ourselves, our country, and our community, we make the world a better place. When we have the love and support of family and friends, anything is possible. Love is a blessing that we all need to share.

What according to you is a true friend?
To look our best, we need to feel our best. Beauty comes from the inside, and in order to maintain it I follow my moms advice. I keep my body well-hydrated, eat healthy, exercise, get plenty of rest, wash my face, and use sunscreen daily to protect my skin.

How do you handle criticism?
I take the most pride in my work ethic. I give 100 percent to everything I do, whether its academics, dancing, or community service. I always strive to do my best.

When was the last time you tried something new?
ME: My favorite day of the week is Monday. It is the start of a new week, and it is a new beginning. I look forward to what is going to happen during the upcoming week, seeing my friends at school, and I also establish my weekly goals.

Do you think crying is a sign of weakness or strength?
My good luck charm is my gold locket that I received from my grandmother for my kindergarden graduation. My grandmother is the one who inspired me to enter pageants, and whenever I wear my locket I know that she is with me and is watching over me in heaven.
