Name: Adrianna Polyak

Age (optional): 17

Town/Neighborhood: Queen Creek/The Villages

When & why I moved here: October 2004, because my parents wanted to get out of Gilbert.

What I like most about living here: Our town is so small you know almost every person you see, and how Queen Creek High School is the only high school because it makes football games so much fun and just gives a warm close community feel.

What I do: I am a senior at Queen Creek High School where I am senior class president, the varsity pom captain, and a part of link crew. Outside of school I dance, mostly tap and contemporary. I compete in pageants, I am also in girl scouts.

What I like most about what I do: I like the variety of activities I participate in, because it gives me a chance to meet all different types of people and make new friends and stay well rounded. Being in a leadership position such as senior class president and being pom captain gives me the leadership skills for the world after high school. Being in girl scouts has taught me to be my own entrepreneur and set goals and get stuff done. Lastly competing in pageants has given me the confidence to be me!

Changes I’d like to see in this area: Adults believing in teenagers and not thinking we are all punks.

Favorite community cause & why: Bailey’s Royal Wish because it helps the whole entire family and also gets the community involved in helping the family out!

My family: I have two loving, but annoying little brothers Kyle (13) and Nathan (12). And so very very supportive and loving parents, Andrea and Keith. I honestly would not be able to do everything I do without them.

My interests and hobbies: Playing the ukulele, longboarding, watching greys anatomy, cliff jumping, hanging out with friends and family, dancing, and listening to music.
The trait(s) I admire in others: I seriously love people that have a sense of humor and are trustworthy, also any person who can completely be themselves and doesn’t care what others think! And someone who is positive and uplifting.

People who inspired me (and how): By my parents and the faculty at queen creek high. My parents are always working so hard and are my biggest fans when it comes to supporting me in everything I do. The teachers are constantly working to ensure we get the best education but it’s not lame and boring and they also love to hear about the things you do outside of school.

My guiding philosophy: be yourself, because no one can do it better

What pageant system do you compete for: America’s U.S. Miss

 

Why do you enjoy pageants: I’m brand new to the Pageant world and so it was kind of scary going into something totally new to me but everyone is so welcoming, kind and genuine and they are always making you feel so good about yourself and boosting your confidence and they also make you feel a part of the family. I had low confidence and after competing in pageants, I feel good about myself and I have that confidence.

What is your talent: Dance, specifically tap and contemporary/lyrical, it’s more of a passion rather than a talent.

What is your favorite part about competing in pageants: The makeup and gorgeous gowns, I love having the chance to wear too much make up (in a good way) and put on a beautiful gown and a lovely pair of heels, it is so fun to dress up and get all fancy.

 

What community service aspects do you participate it: Feed My Starving Children, Bailey’s Royal Wish, I have called Bingo at the senior center at the Parks and Rec, read books to preschool classes, also emceed several Girl Scout Events and made an appearance in the Tucson Light Parade during Christmas.
