So, let's see what happens when Mina Smith visits Section 36!
What made you decide to compete for the Miss Vermont’s Teen crown as Miss Northern Vermont’s Teen?
I hoped to learn about the sisterhood, gain confidence, try something new, and make an impact on people in my state and my area by showing ways to Love Your Neighbor. I live in the northern area of Vermont near Lake Champlain and Burlington, my stepdad is from a small town called Cambridge bordering Stowe also in northern Vermont, and I love the beautiful mountains, waterfalls, and rivers in the north and all of Vermont!
What is something that Ginger Ragaishis is doing as Miss Vermont’s Teen that you would like to emulate?
I have a slight learning disability, really really appreciate my IEP teachers, and love that Ginger has made me and others feel more comfortable talking about our learning disabilities.
As a talented dancer, what do you enjoy about performing on stage?
How did you select your CSI, “Love Your Neighbor”?
If you could be a Disney character for a week, who would you choose? Why?
I would love to be Cruella de Vil from the movie Cruella, because she had an amazing fashion sense, was daring, courageous, fun, and really loved the woman who cared for her even though it turned out to not be her real mom. She fought for her mother figure!
Is there a feature or activity at a baseball game that you would especially like to experience?
As always, I want to thank Mina for visiting with us, and for sending along the pictures to go with the interview.
I'm sure you'd like to follow along with Mina during her time as Miss Northern Vermont's Teen. You should be sure to check out her title's Instagram account. It's a great way to keep track of everything she has going on, and you'll be sure not to miss anything.
Thanks again Mina, and good luck in the future!
