Getting To Know MAALIYAH PAPILLION - Miss Louisiana USA 2016


If there were no rules in your life for one day and you could be outrageous, what would you do? 
I would immediately take a flight to Europe, find a home and retire there. 

What would you like to read as the headline in tomorrow's newspaper? 
"Breaking News: Free Education for Everyone" 


Describe your dream house. 
I would actually prefer to live in a "tiny home" somewhere in New York City.

In a bouquet of flowers, what flower would you be and why?
I would be a sunflower because of my upbeat and vibrant personality. (Great choice, Maaliyah! Sunflower is the official flower of Critical Beauty!)


How would you introduce yourself if you were a guest speaker? 
I would make sure to introduce myself with something who has a great life story who can offer great advice for anyone pursuing their goals. 

Who do you want to be the next U.S. President and why? 
I prefer to keep my political preferences private, however I do think that our next president should equally be aware of what needs to change in the White House as well as with the welfare of the populous and strive everyday to make desirable changes to each. 



If you could be great at one thing, what would it be and why?
I would like to be great at cooking (which is perfectly attainable for me) because I was raised in a family who loves food. Cooking is an extension of love where I'm from and I would love to carry that tradition into my adult life.  

What do you like to do for fun? 
Traveling is my ultimate escape and one of the main ways that I choose to have fun. 


If you had one message to the world, what would it be? 
You don't have to be perfect to be happy. Imperfection is what makes us human so embrace your flaws and go with the flow of life. 

Why should you be the next Miss USA? 
I firmly believe in empowering everyone to truly embrace themselves and to go confidently in the direction of their dreams and as Miss USA, I will be able to promote this on a grander scale.
