Miss Connecticut 2013 Kaitlyn Tarpey bio:
Name: Kaitlyn Tarpey
Title: Miss Southington
School: Honors College at Pace University
A. As Miss Connecticut, I will have a hardy list of to-dos including the promotion of my platform, Veterans’ Awareness, the Miss America Organization, and Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals, but overall I want to spread positivity. I genuinely believe that this world sometimes lacks love and that Miss Connecticut is in the perfect position to help spread positive messages. I want to be a Miss Connecticut that children can relate to, and that adults can admire for her hard work ethic and dedication to her job. I consistently speak about staying positive to children, volunteers, and business owners because I have learned that what is to come is always better than what has come and gone. As Americans we can overcome the adversities that we face by creating comfortable and loving environments for our children, veterans and those in need.
B. Oh boy, 20 years is a long time from now. I like to set short term goals as opposed to thinking that far ahead. So, in the next five years I would love to see myself as a former Miss Connecticut working in the human resources field. I hope to have time to travel the world after I graduate, so maybe I’ll go to a foreign country and decide to stay. When I get to 2033, I hope to be a mother, enjoying a much different life than the one I live now.
C. Taegan has been my best friend since freshman year in high school. She typically describes me as an organized, sincere go-getter who has no issue balancing a handful of tasks and roles. Without me present, she would probably mention that I have really grown to laugh at myself and embrace my quirkiness while staying true to my professional mentality.
