JUST ASK MARRISA!
Hi, I'm Marissa Runge, Miss National Jr Teen U.S. 2018! I'm 17 years old and not only am I a pageant queen, but I act, model, swim, horseback ride, and volunteer at schools in my town.
With my title, I plan to promote my platform and make a difference in not only my community, but others throughout reign. I want to acknowledge the issues of animal cruelty and homeless animals, I want to prevent and put an end to the suffering of helpless pets and help them find loving, lifelong homes. I also want to spread positivity to young girls, whether it be body image or other factors that make being a girl hard sometimes!
I never really saw myself as being the pageant "type" (I'm kind of a tomboy), until my mom signed me up and pageant weekend came. It was an amazing, life changing experience for me. I met wonderful people, who later became my sisters, and learned so many life lessons like self confidence and preserving my reputation. I was very wrong, any girl can be a pageant girl if they put their mind to it! There really is no such thing as a pageant type, as long as they are kind and open to new experiences, any girl can be a queen!
•If there was no change, there'd be no butterflies• Take chances!
Lots Of Love,
Miss National Jr Teen U.S. 2018-19
