Arlena Occhipinti

What Superhero would you like to be and why?
My platform is all about loving the skin youre in whether you have on makeup or not, but I love a swipe of mascara just to bring out my eyes Makeup is all about self-expression. It gives a woman the power to increase her confidence and feel good about herself.

What according to you is a true friend?
Although I believe everyone is unique to themselves, i would have to say a celebrity I resemble most would be kate Middleton. Not only do we have similar physical characteristics her personality traits also are attributes of mine. Kate Middletons modest dressing and overall caring personality is something I value about myself as well.

How do you handle criticism?
My passion for volunteering is what motivates me . I volunteer because it continuously teaches me something new about people, about cooperation, about compassion, and about myself. In helping others, I am reminded that we are all in this together and we need to remember to support each other. Life has so much to offer if we remember look beyond ourselves.

When was the last time you tried something new?
My perfect Saturday would have to be breakfast with friends at our favorite cafe .....followed my attending an event. I try to get at least one event each weekend because its truly rewarding to see how much I can make an impact... Then concluding the night with Saturday mass and dinner with my grandparents.
