Faith Wilhite - 2nd Runner-Up
1.What is the funniest thing you believed as a child?
I used to think that the tooth fairy was real, and I couldn’t wait to lose my baby teeth so I could get money. I would try to stay awake at night after putting the tooth under my pillow so I could see her, but that never worked out. Little did I know it was my parents hiding the cash under my pillow!
2.What is the one talent you wish you had?
It would be so cool if I were a gymnast - balancing on the beam while flipping is so impressive! Being a trained ballet and tap dancer, I have really good endurance and balance; but, trying to do my dance moves 4 feet off the ground would be very intimidating. I have a lot of admiration for the gymnasts.
3.Other than your family, who is your biggest supporter?
I am very fortunate to have a wonderful support system. Since I was six years old, Mrs. Bernée Thurow, has always been so encouraging and helped give advice when needed. She is very generous with her time and talent and always goes the extra mile to help me out. She is wise and honest and she motivates me to be my best self.
4.What is the best costume you’ve ever worn for Halloween?
For a costume party I would dress up as an angel with really big wings and a giant halo headband. I would personally design it and make sure my dress was covered with rhinestones and sequins because a girl can never have too much sparkle!
5.What song makes you 100% of the time want to dance?
One of my favorite songs is “I just need U” by Toby Mac since it is an inspirational Christian song. This song is one that we played on our road trips to the national pageants. It always brings back fun memories of those trips and makes me want to dance and sing along.
