Miss Massachusetts International™ 2019

Nicole Johnson


If you could teach a class in school, what would it be?
The first time I fell in love, I was 15 and my teacher assigned us Pride & Prejudice by Jane Austen. Through reading, for a small moment of time, you can go anywhere, feel anything, and it is the joy of my heart. Itís a personal goal of mine to read all the books on the list of 100 Greatest Literary Works. Iím currently on 63! If I could teach any class, it would be literature.

Name one of your strengths and one of your weaknesses
My greatest strength is controlling my actions and emotions. I try not to get upset with peopleÖ ever. When I think about it, every upset feeling is just because a person didnít think or behave the way I wanted them to. Thatís not really fair. I try to accept people for who they are. I appreciate diversity in thought. A weakness is probably making jokes at inappropriate times.

What qualities do you feel a titleholder should possess?
I want this title more than anything. But so does everyone else. Judges canít measure your heart or how much you want something. In a pageant, you have to fall in love with the process of becoming great. You have to be Miss International, with or without the crown. To me, the qualities that a titleholder should possess is seeing the beauty in all of the work it takes to be prepared for competition day.

What makeup item could you not live without and why?
Concealer! Although I get enough sleep, in the morning I have puffy eyes. If I donít conceal before class, everyone thinks Iíve been crying. I have cream concealer for my eyes, liquid concealer for my brows and stick concealer for the random spots in between. Itís rare that I leave the house without it.

Do you feel that beauty pageants help or hurt how society views women?
Weíre a society thatís obsessed with categorizing people so we can ďfigure them outĒ. Once youíre labeled something, itís almost impossible for you to be seen as something else. Iím proud of my body, wearing a beauty gown with hair and makeup to match and giving back to my community. Iím also proud to be a student at Harvard University. The problem isnít pageants, the problem is people canít see that we can do both!
