10 questions with Miss Teen USA 2015 Katherine Haik

28 Jul

LAS VEGAS REVIEW JOURNAL- At age 15, Katherine Haik of Covington, La., became the youngest Miss Teen USA in history when she was crowned Aug. 22 in Nassau, Bahamas.

On Saturday at The Venetian, Haik, now 16, crowns her successor, and Carissa Morrow of Henderson is among the hopefuls as 2016 Miss Teen Nevada.

Katherine, who begins her junior year in high school this fall, answered 10 questions via email ahead of Saturday’s competition.

What can we expect during Saturday’s 2016 Miss Teen USA Pageant at The Venetian?

You can expect to see 51 confidently beautiful young women who have all worked so hard to compete and represent their states at the 2016 Miss Teen USA! We have Nick Fradiani, the winner of AMERICAN IDOL Season 14 performing, so fans should get ready for a high-energy show.

This year also marks the first time that the contestants will compete in athletic wear instead of swimsuits. The decision is an important cultural shift for the Miss Universe Organization, which continues to celebrate and empower young women who lead active, purposeful lives and encourage those in their communities to do the same. I can’t wait to be a part of it all.

What advice would you give the contestants?

I tell the contestants to always be yourself, have lots of fun and make it about enjoying the experience. Only one will walk away with the title of Miss Teen USA 2016, so it is most important to meet new friends and create memorable experiences from this week.

And the winner in her upcoming year as Miss Teen USA?
