Miss Teen South Dakota International®

Patience Lunday

What Superhero would you like to be and why?
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.

What according to you is a true friend?
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.

How do you handle criticism?
My time management rocks and Im very well organized. Its probably the best habit I have as a result of keeping a busy schedule.

When was the last time you tried something new?
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.

Do you think crying is a sign of weakness or strength?
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.
