Miss Illinois International™ 2019

Aryssa Joel - 3rd Runner-Up


If you could teach a class in school, what would it be?
“Skills For Living” was a very practical, fun class that was informal compared to a traditional educational classroom. We learned to cook, sew, and the essentials of healthy living. I would love to teach this class because it will allow me to create a less formal relationship with students while at the same time providing basic insight into life skills.

Name one of your strengths and one of your weaknesses
My strength is my ability to communicate. My interpersonal skills allow me to relate to any one at any level and find common ground. This puts me in a position of influence as I can hold people’s attention so they listen to my message. A weakness is the desire to strive for perfection which can sometimes cause delays in getting tasks done so I always remind myself that life is not always perfect.

What qualities do you feel a titleholder should possess?
Being relatable. A titleholder gains a platform that is so expansive, it crosses boundaries of language, culture and geography. Being relatable makes you accessible to everyone you meet and allows you to capture the hearts of people across all walks of life. If you are relatable, sharing the message of your platform will be more receptive to your audience.

What makeup item could you not live without and why?
My Rys Gloss. I collaborated with a makeup company that allowed me to design my own custom lip gloss. It smells like vanilla cappuccino and has extra moisture. I love the color which is dark peachy color the extra moisture is extremely appreciated because as a flight attendant I am in the air all the time as well as in different states with different temperatures.

Do you feel that beauty pageants help or hurt how society views women?
I think the perception of beauty pageants as ‘just beautiful women’ has changed significantly over the years. Women in pageants are now perceived as empowered, ambitious, intelligent, self-driven, goal oriented. They hold a prominent place in society and make a difference as they all champion a platform with a message to make a difference.
