Miss Teen Alaska International®

Taiya Thompson

What Superhero would you like to be and why?
I have three siblings that keep me laughing constantly. My brother loves to impersonate people dancing, and he is so good at it! My littlest sister can hold a conversation like she is 10, shes 3... and my other sister and I are just goofy together.

What according to you is a true friend?
I really enjoy driving. When I'm feeling too overwhelmed, I will go hop in my car, turn my music up loud and drive. I dont even have to have a destination, I will just go wherever the wheels take me.

How do you handle criticism?
I love stunting! You get crazy muscle definition and the adrenaline that runs through your body when you hit a perfect stunt just feels awesome, and the crowd loves it!

When was the last time you tried something new?
I have a closet full of super cute clothes, but living in Alaska where it gets down to -50 degrees, I always find myself in yoga pants, a sweatshirt, and my Uggs :) I stay warm and comfortable.

Do you think crying is a sign of weakness or strength?
Easy, jeans from MissMe. I love their jeans! And if there was any money left over, I would spend the rest on anything that sparkles, shines, or is sequined!
