Miss Teen New Jersey International®

Courtney Rone

What Superhero would you like to be and why?
The theme song I would use to walk into a room would be I Was Born This Way by Lady Gaga. There is nothing better than being yourself, having people accept you for who you are and accepting yourself for the person you are. I feel that being strong and confident in my strengths and weaknesses makes me the best person I can be. It is the person I am willing to experience life as.

What according to you is a true friend?
I like shopping at a store called Garage. I like the diversity of their clothing. I enjoy that some clothing is outside the box and can influence my creativity and yet there is a typical style that keeps me grounded. If I am feeling a little adventurous I can inter-mix the two. I feel this store allows me to challenge my normal and explore my imagination.

How do you handle criticism?
My favorite family vacation is our yearly visit to Stone Harbor, New Jersey. We stay at the same hotel, with the same family friends who my dad grew up with since kindergarten and who have children close in age to us. Its a tradition I cherish especially now that my dad has passed away. The stories from their past, while creating our own gives a sense of comfort and calm to our long weekend together.

When was the last time you tried something new?
My favorite outdoor activity is with my friends on the playground of our elementary school. Its where it all began. It reminds me where I started, of what Ive overcome and what it took of myself to get here now, it makes me proud of the things Ive accomplished and the dreams I look forward to achieving, I like thinking of how we met and that we are all still together so many years later.
