Miss Teen South Dakota International®

Patience Lunday

1.What is the funniest thing you believed as a child?
Lately, in South Dakota, we havent been getting very much rain. Every time it rains, I take a couple minutes to really savor the sound knowing that we as South Dakotans dont hear it all that often.

2.What is the one talent you wish you had?
To get straight A's and never crack open a book. Id love to have the talent of being naturally book smart because for me to get good grades, I have to hit the books every night. However, I was blessed with street smarts. It all happens for a reason.

3.Other than your family, who is your biggest supporter?
My time management rocks and Im very well organized. Its probably the best habit I have as a result of keeping a busy schedule.

4.What is the best costume you’ve ever worn for Halloween?
Do I make mistakes? Only every other minute. I wouldnt want it any other way. Learning keeps a person young, and I always do my best to learn from my mistakes. I should be forever young.

5.What song makes you 100% of the time want to dance?
Bangs, also known as fry bread, is my number one favorite food. Im Native American and it is one of the thing that keeps me close to my culture. Ive spent numerous hours helping my mom make it.
