Courtney Critz - Top Ten - Fitness Wear - Photogenic & On-Line Voting Winner

What Superhero would you like to be and why?
My little brother because he is the perfect combination of silly and crazy. He can make anyone laugh. Whether he fools me with a magic trick or mimics me in a pageant gown, he is a ham! And not to mention, my best friend.

What according to you is a true friend?
When I was 2 months old I had to have a tracheotomy. While my neck may look unusual to some, I consider it a constant reminder for me to give my time and talents to others, just as others give to me.

How do you handle criticism?
For the past 13 years I have danced to my hearts content. Ballet, tap and jazz, keep my heart strong and my body active. More recently I found a new passion to run. In the past year I have run several 5ks and even a half marathon.

When was the last time you tried something new?
My orange dress! This sparkling, playful dress has accompanied me, on the stage, in photo shoots and even to my freshman homecoming. I fear the day I grow out of that dress. But until then, you never know where it might pop up next!

Do you think crying is a sign of weakness or strength?
Shoes, shoes and more shoes! And of course some essentials like a basic top, a cardigan, dark skinny jeans and a fun skirt. With the basics and an assortment of shoes, a fashion statement can be made any day of the week.
