“My name is Mia Badillo, and some of my hobbies are diving, baking, reading, and embarking on new adventures. What I am most looking forward to from the pageant is meeting new people, experiencing new things, growing and learning my capabilities, and stepping out of my comfort zone. Several reasons inspired me to compete this year. Since I was young, I have always been interested in cosmetic beauty and fashion. My biggest supporter was my grandmother, and I promised her she would see me up there someday. Unfortunately, she passed away not long ago, and I made a vow to her and myself to push myself out of my comfort zone and pursue all the dreams we talked about.”
