Miss California International®

Tara Broderick - 2nd Runner-Up

What is the first thing you notice about a person?
I notice their eyes. I love making eye contact with people I first meet because I believe their eyes can actually smile back at you and tell their whole story. There is nothing more beautiful than eye contact and making a strong emotional connection with someone within seconds of meeting them.

What goals do you have for the next five years?
My short term goal is to travel to every state and country to promote my platform EmpowHER and the Girl’s Up program to teach their curriculum and break gender stereotypes. My long term goal is to continue my career as a welder and become certified in electrical engineering to become an owner of a transformer service and repair company in a male dominated industry and rewrite history.

What is the first thing you would do if you won the lottery?
Aside from donating a large sum to the Girl Up and Girls Inc organizations to navigate gender and social barriers to grow up healthy, independent, and educated. I would want to travel the world and sample every delicious treat I could get my hands on.

What is the most useless thing you’ ve ever purchased?
To many it’s useless, but to me it provides me with endless amounts of laughter and ice breakers. It’s my “101 So Bad They’re Good, Dad Jokes” book. Because if you can’t be funny at least you can be punny!

What’s the best way to spend a rainy afternoon?
Being the food connoisseur that I am, my rainy days consist of cooking and baking. There is nothing better than having comfort food and a delicious treat as you sit by the TV watching every Adam Sandler movie he’s ever created.
