World Class Beauty Queens: Hello Tracy thank you for taking the time to Interview with us. Tell us about yourself.
I am a professional fashion model, an officer at a global investment management firm, columnist for a national magazine and most importantly, wife and mother of 3 young children.
World Class Beauty Queens: To our readers that are unfamiliar with Mrs. Connecticut please tell us about the system.
United States system tell us what is it about? The Mrs. United States pageant is an incredible system which is now in it’s 30th year. The vision for the pageant is to honor and pay tribute to special women, who often play many roles as wife, mother, home maker, and professional, with resilience and flair uncommonly found elsewhere.
World Class Beauty Queens: What made you decide to compete for your title?
I am new to pageants and was first inspired to compete after giving birth to my third child two years ago. I really want to show women that they can achieve balance in their work and personal lives and have fun doing so. Further, I want to continue my work to educate people on the importance of diversity and combating unconscious bias.
World Class Beauty Queens: Please tell us about your modeling achievements.
I have been modeling for over 15 years and have been featured in print ads, magazines, news segments and independent films. Most recently, I was on the cover of Supermodels Unlimited Magazine and Model Society Magazine. Two months ago I walked for high end designers, like Batax Blue and Iryna Kavalenka, in New York Fashion week and Rhode Island Fashion week. Further, I just filmed two national commercials; one for CVS and another for a building supply company.
World Class Beauty Queens: What advice would you give to young teens entering the modeling industry?
Believe in and respect yourself. Modeling can be a rewarding experience which provides exposure, connections, personal growth and confidence. It is certainly something they can do in balance with their normal teenage life.
World Class Beauty Queens: What are some Interesting facts you want people to know about you?
I placed second in an international business competition, survived SuperStorm Sandy, was the subject of recent magazine article “Model of Inspiration” and was a finalist in American Apparel’s new face search.
World Class Beauty Queens: You also have a title of Mrs. Supermodel 2017, tell us about this competition and your amazing title.
The Supermodels Unlimited pageant is sponsored by the wonderful people behind Supermodels Unlimited Magazine. The pageant’s focus extends beyond external beauty and modeling skills, but on the beauty within each of us.
World Class Beauty Queens: What were you judged on during the competition?
On stage speaking ability, runway modeling and evening gown.
World Class Beauty Queens: What was your favorite part of the competition?
The on stage speaking segment. I love communicating about my life, experiences and platform.
World Class Beauty Queens: Evening gown is a big part of competition. The right gown not only makes the judges feel like they are looking at a winner, it makes the contestant wearing the gown feel like she is a winner. When you find the gown you are in love with, you automatically walk prouder, with your head held high and your shoulders back. For me, the most successful gown perfectly suits my personal style. I focus on selecting something that is a portrait of who I am and what I represent.
World Class Beauty Queens: What is your onstage strategy to win the judges over?
Posture speaks volumes, answer thoughtfully, be concise, know what you believe and do not be intimidated. To impress anyone you just need to be true to yourself.
World Class Beauty Queens: Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
Continuing my journey as a loving wife and mother. Working to promote my career and platform. Hopefully serving again as a national titleholder!
World Class Beauty Queens: What does the crown and sash symbolizes to you?
Beauty with a purpose.
World Class Beauty Queens: How did competing in pageants helped your life?
In the short time I have competed, I feel that pageants empowered me to develop the confidence I need to achieve my personal best. A confident woman has the power to make real change, starting locally and with the potential of reaching a global audience.
World Class Beauty Queens: Please tell us about your platform.
My platform is combating Unconscious Bias. It’s necessary to fight against bias in order to create a world that supports and encourages diverse perspectives and people. Not only is that the right thing to do, once we are each consciously aware and can honestly identify and engage in courageous conversations about our negative unconscious biases, we can then learn ways to talk through, overcome and change them. And we will all benefit from doing this: our careers will benefit, those around us will benefit, our future generations will benefit...and the world will benefit.
World Class Beauty Queens: What are some of the appearances and volunteering that you done?
I have had numerous volunteer based accomplishments this year. I coordinated efforts in corporate America which raise awareness of the importance of diversity and combatting unconscious bias. Published two briefs detailing methods that can improve diversity and fight unconscious bias. Served as an advocate for thyroid health and as the administrator of a Facebook page “Thyroid Aware”. Attended nationwide fundraising events for the Graves’ Disease and Thyroid Foundation. Performed fundraising for the Wounded Warrior Project (I personally raised over $1,000.00 and am a member of the Advanced Guard Program). Lastly, I mentor college students and aspiring models.
World Class Beauty Queens: What are some happy memories you have while competing in pageants.
Meeting such accomplished and inspiring woman. The friendships formed are as great a reward as the crown itself.
World Class Beauty Queens: Tell us about your job and Women being represented on wall street.
I am proud to represent woman in finance and do that in balance with being a wife, mother and community volunteer. I would like to see a greater representation of women on the street and on corporate boards. And the popular new statue, “Fearless Girl”, which was installed across from the iconic Charging Bull sculpture by Wall Street, has helped fuel powerful conversations on this topic. It’s time for gender equality in the boardroom; time for men and women to work together in leadership.
World Class Beauty Queens: You are also a proud mother, please tell us about it.
I have three beautiful children: Gianna (age 7), Joseph (age 5) and Patrick (age 2). Motherhood is truly a remarkable gift and a privilege that I hold very close to my heart. To me, being a mother means being fearless, to be a positive role model and a demonstration of unconditional love.
World Class Beauty Queens: Since you are part of the Mrs. circuit, which represents married women, describe how you met your husband.
I met my husband, Bill, after SuperStorm Sandy. Bill is President and Head Contractor of the firm I hired to rebuild my home after it was flooded by the storm. He was my knight in shining armor…although he showed up wearing plaid and a tool belt.
World Class Beauty Queens: What kind of legacy do you want to leave behind?
“You reap what you sow.” I hope my legacy includes my children (who will also have a sense of purpose, direction and mission, my passion for recognizing the world’s needs and responding with compassion and action, my optimism in the face of all challenges and my belief in hope and faith
World Class Beauty Queens: What is the one Value your parents enstilled in you that you feel is the most important and why?
From an early age my parents taught me the importance of respect. This can be expressed as something as simple as listening, displaying good manners, kindness and the way you speak to someone. Respect is a sign of character. Equally important is learning to respect yourself. This can be shown through making positive choices, standing-up for what you think is right and advocating for those who are less fortunate.
World Class Beauty Queens: Tell us one thing that is unique about yourself:
My ability to drive a new business or process to success.
World Class Beauty Queens: What are three words that best describe you?
Caring /Respectful /Old Fashioned
World Class Beauty Queens: What do you feel is the primary role of the contemporary married woman in today’s society:
Family is like a wheel and the contemporary married woman is the hub. Her role is always at the center around which the wheel revolves. On those days when the furnace breaks, the kids are sick or relatives show up unannounced, she keeps the big wheel turning. She is also like the sun, a source of warmth, love and light.
World Class Beauty Queens: What do you feel are the most important components of a happy marriage and why?
A happy marriage is like good recipe. The main ingredients are love, commitment and communication. Marriage also requires paying attention to the little things that bring spice and sweetness to the mixture of a man and a woman. Bringing all of this together creates something really unique.
