Miss Teen South Dakota International®

Jaclynn Knutson

What Superhero would you like to be and why?
Unwritten by Natasha Bedingfield describes a young girl beginning to write her own song. Unwritten represents me and all of the junior high ladies that I meet through my platform, FearlesslyGirl. Through my workshops, I am guiding my participants hands in a position direction as they write their stories. I am still writing my own story of my journey to success the rest is still unwritten.

What according to you is a true friend?
When I am working and traveling the country, Boot Barn always has my back for any wardrobe needs. It is a national chain, so if I forget something at home, Boot Barn is my trusty sidekick that has everything I need.

How do you handle criticism?
I love traveling! Every Christmas, my parents, sisters, and I travel across the state to Rapid City in the Black Hills of South Dakota to visit my moms family. I enjoy spending time with family members that I dont get to see often and taking in the adventures and sites of the Black Hills.

When was the last time you tried something new?
Ever since I was three years old, I have showed sheep. For years, I have appreciated this art! I enjoy spending family time during the summer at sheep shows. My sister Alison and I have a nonverbal language that gives us an edge over the competition. Traveling to over twenty-five states, receiving multiple scholarships, and gaining endless connections are all thanks to my dedication to showing sheep.
