Miss California International™ 2019


Rita Garabet - 1st Runner-Up

 

If you could teach a class in school, what would it be?
General Chemistry, without a doubt. My love for science was fostered when I took this class in high school. The teacher I had was extremely passionate, thus beginning a trend of excitement to fully learn this subject that carried on throughout my academic career. I believe that I could keep this cycle going, since my appreciation for chemistry would show and I could potentially inspire more women to pursue STEM careers.


Name one of your strengths and one of your weaknesses
My perfectionism can be both my greatest attribute and hindrance. I hold such high expectations of myself, and at times it can make me feel defeated. However, it is my strong sense of care that allows me to tackle any task handed my way!


What qualities do you feel a titleholder should possess?
Dedication, relatability and integrity. To be an extraordinary titleholder, one must be dedicated to create a lasting impact on the community around her by attending events and advocating for her platform. To ensure that this impact lasts, she must relate well with the people in her community to keep her legacy alive. Ultimately, a titleholder must have integrity because she embodies more than herself, but rather the community she proudly wears on her chest.


What makeup item could you not live without and why?
I am a makeup enthusiast; therefore, this question is especially challenging. Although, I could not live without a nude lipstick that has cool undertones. I believe that one’s smile is the true window to the soul, and one should do their best to enhance it. I choose nude because it is my favorite lip color, but the cool undertones help give teeth a whiter appearance. Try it out!


Do you feel that beauty pageants help or hurt how society views women?
I believe that pageant systems like Miss International help to constructively shape how society views women. Since it is a platform based pageant, the women involved are helping to make positive changes in their respective communities on significant issues. The interview competition also empowers women to become more eloquent and prepare them for their lives beyond pageantry.
