Blair Wortsmith - Miss Teen International 2014

1.What is the funniest thing you believed as a child?
1. My sophomore year I was selected to represent my school at the Hugh OBrien Youth Leadership seminar. HOBY is one of the nations foremost leadership development organizations. It focuses on our global youth community with student participants from 18,000 cities and 75 countries. I was honored to return this year and be selected as a junior counselor. These experiences help me discover my leadership potential and embrace the importance of volunteering throughout the world.

2.What is the one talent you wish you had?
2. Believe it or not, I am a certified open water scuba diver. When I was in seventh grade my dad surprised me with scuba diving lessons. At first, I was terrified and very reluctant to trust the oxygen tank. I also had to get my certification in a really dark lake. (Claustrophobic!!!) Thankfully I overcame my fears and passed my open water dive. I would highly recommend everyone trying this exhilarating sport! AMAZING!

3.Other than your family, who is your biggest supporter?
3. I have participated in several teen outreach programs designed for students interested in careers in the medical field. Through the Perry Initiative and HEALERS Program I had the opportunity to dissect a human brain. (Oh yes I did!) I spent three days in an emergency room, networked with professionals and observed doctors working with their patients. I was inspired, challenged and motivated. Dr. Blair Wortsmith has a great ring to it dont you think?

4.What is the best costume you’ve ever worn for Halloween?
4. I was born to very active parents. From an early age I learned the importance of exercising and striving to be physically fit. I was able to try most every outdoor sport and be a competitive dance squad member. Making healthy choices and finding what works for you is so important. I am currently a state Ambassador for the NFLs Play 60 movement and working in conjunction with the Alliance for a Healthier Generation.

5.What song makes you 100% of the time want to dance?
5. My school was a part of our countrys growth in 1957. By attending historical Little Rock Central High School, I have learned to celebrate diversity, develop a heart for service and posses a strong desire to make a difference in the world. I am participating as a leader in school based clubs and organizations, volunteering in my community and being a part of a new generation paying it forward.
