Mikayla Wood

What Superhero would you like to be and why?
Some people have their dream place to live chosen, I however dont yet. Right now Im still learning about the world and about myself, I know I want to live in the country, away from the crowds, but other than that. I want to go where God leads me in life. Trusting the Lord, I know that wherever I do end up will be right.

What according to you is a true friend?
My parents have been taking us to Hawaii since before I could walk. One of the funniest memories I have is when my parents took us on our first snorkel sail. We got in the water and this blue fish swam right into my face. I was horrified and was out of the water as fast as I got in, my parents say it this way, Like Jesus she practically walked on water.

How do you handle criticism?
If I win Miss Teen International 2018, my goal is to show kids that you can rise above the bullies. You dont have to be what they labeled you and if you stay true to yourself and what you believe, then you will rise above it and proving them all wrong is the greatest reward. My hope is to continue working with kids and begin local programs to put a stop to bullying.

When was the last time you tried something new?
To me, beauty is not defined by what designer you wear or how expensive your makeup is. Beauty is how you shine without the makeup, what you do and how you live off camera, out of the scope of peoples eyes. Beauty is compassion for those around you, beauty is a humble, serving heart, and beauty is one who loves everyone blindly, no matter who they are or where they have come from.
