Emily Lites - 2nd Runner-Up

What Superhero would you like to be and why?
My middle name is Scarlett and I think it's really unique and pretty. I love my middle name so much, that my mother and I co-own a consignment store entitled Scarlett Anne's Boutique, combining our love of fashion, bargain hunting and our middle names!

What according to you is a true friend?
Sunday! I absolutely love going to church and spending time with family and to stay home eating dinner outside, and relaxing. Sundays are the best days to catch up on Netflix shows and to experiment making a yummy dessert together!

How do you handle criticism?
A Little Princess embodies everything my mom taught me as a young lady. Every girl is a princess and a princess is someone who is beautiful on the inside. The main character faces heartbreak and diversity with such undeniable strength. She truly is a a role model for all "little princess's". I love watching this with my mom and having quality bonding time!

When was the last time you tried something new?
I played softball for ten years before my brother Jude got really sick. I alternated positions from pitcher to catcher. I loved being a part of a team and getting better with practice. I think young children can learn so much from organized sports including teamwork, determination and hustle, many of the same things I have learned from pageantry!
