Kayelin Tiggs - Top Ten

People's Choice Award

1.What is 1 beauty product you cannot live without?
My friends are more like family. Being a good friend is providing someone with a space of true belonging where they can be their authentic self. Friendship doesn’t discriminate by age, race, gender, or background. Therefore a good friend is someone who can see YOU.

2.If you had to do over anything what would it be?
I believe we experience stress when we prioritize purpose over wellness. As someone who is very driven, having balance is critical to my wellbeing. I often practice “Emotional First Aide” to deal with the many emotions that accompany the root of my stress.

3.Who would you love to meet and why?
When things become difficult, it’s important to remember that everything is fixable. Sometimes the solution is that there is no solution, and at that point we must be willing to relinquish control. Competing in 22 pageants before winning my first title taught me that losing is difficult, but losing yourself is harder.

4.Favorite vacation?
Dignity is the belief and practice of knowing your self-worth. Our dignity is nonnegotiable. It must be something that we define for ourselves and defend for others.

5.What do you normally eat for breakfast?
Many do not know that I grew up in an African family and one of my favorite traditions is cooking authentic Nigerian food for the holidays.
