Miss Teen New Mexico International®

Ariel Arzola-Lilly

What Superhero would you like to be and why?
A 45 record playing! I have a fetish for WWII, so to me there's such a nostalgic and comforting feeling from the unique sound a record produces, which cannot be reproduced on iTunes! I love to play one to practice dancing, or curl up with a hot cup of tea!

What according to you is a true friend?
Being mechanically inclined! I tend to have slight difficulties when it comes to working hands on with mechanical objects, such as cars. However, I view it as a challenge, where I simply have to put more effort into accomplishing the task effectively and efficiently.

How do you handle criticism?
My tendency to be proactive combined with my organizational skills! Especially when I take on a leadership position or task. I constantly create detailed plans and reach out to contacts relevant to my role. These skills make a large impression while gaining me an immense amount of respect from individuals!

When was the last time you tried something new?
Of course I do! As any other individual, I do make mistakes from time to time. I overview those mistakes in order to learn from them and not make the same mistake twice. I'm a firm believer that our experiences play a fundamental role in strengthening our character and values.

Do you think crying is a sign of weakness or strength?
I love to immerse myself in different cultures, I try nearly everything involving food! If I have to choose one type of food though, it would be Chile! There is this wonderful sushi restaurant that makes Hatch green chili, tempura sushi rolls! It describes my taste in food perfectly!
