Miss Teen North Dakota International®

Payton Hausauer

What Superhero would you like to be and why?
If I changed my name, I would change it to Aria. An aria is a piece of music with an expressive melody. Arias are long accompanied songs for a solo voice, typical in an opera. I love what it means, as well as the way the word sings as you say it.

What according to you is a true friend?
I think every day of the week is a gift, but Saturdays are my favorite! It is an opportunity each week to have a day that I structure, according to my own plan. I enjoy Saturday morning theatre rehearsals and spending time with my family and friends.

How do you handle criticism?
My favorite movie as a child was the Disney movie, The Game Plan. It is a story of a young girl who ironically, shares the name Payton with me. She loses her mom and goes to live with a father she do not know. The message in the end is that family is the most important thing!

When was the last time you tried something new?
My favorite sport is figure skating. The North Dakota winters provide us with the opportunity to embrace some winter activities. I grew up in a home with a pond in the back yard. That is where I learned to skate. When I was younger, I competed in figure skating and synchronized team skating. The skill and artistry involved in skating make it challenging to learn and captivating to watch.
