Miss Teen Utah International®

Ansley Funes

What Superhero would you like to be and why?
Somewhere Over the Rainbow by Israel Kamakawiwoole. It means to look up, see the beauty around you and believe that dreams can come true. This is my grandfathers favorite song and I honored him by singing and playing the Ukulele at his funeral. My other grandfather was born and raised in Hawaii and loves the Hawaiian culture. This song brings my family close and sends a message to look and see the beauty around us.

What according to you is a true friend?
My mom has taught me to be a champion stylist-on-a-budget. I shop a lot online at ASOS and Lulus. While Im out on the town, I go to Macys, H&M and Nordstrom.

How do you handle criticism?
Once there was a man who proposed to a beautiful blonde woman at 5,790 feet. My mom said yes and, every year since, The Funes family has hiked at Zions National Park to the top of Angels Landing. They say its one of the worlds most renowned hikes with the most breathtaking views. I believe its because two of the greatest people in this world chose to be together forever.

When was the last time you tried something new?
I love being out in nature and snapping a picturesque sunset, of which I have over 100. My lovely Utah is loaded with nature trails that go from one city to the next. I love having a hiking trail outside my front door. I can be hiking, on rollerblades or on a long board all day in the sunshine. Who knew working out for hours at a time could be so much fun.
