Busy as we may be, we’re going to miss the blog being so busy when all our top twenty interviews are over. But luckily it won’t be long before we catch up with the finalists…bring on the photoshoot!
My name is Katie Bizzak, I am 20 years old, and a junior at Indiana University of Pennsylvania. I am in the nursing program, on my way to become a registered nurse. I love cats, chocolate, ice cream, coffee, and naps. I cherish spending time with family, especially my 98 and 88 year old grandmas. I am a nurse’s aid at my local nursing home, and absolutely love caring for the residents and spending time with them. I feel like I have a hundred different grandmas and grandpas. I am from a little town, in the middle of nowhere, that consists of one stop light and a Dollar General. Lots of hunting and fishing goes on here, which I love to do as a past time with my older brother and dad. I love the tight knit community I was so fortunate to grow up in, consisting of 89 close friends in my graduating class, and about 4000 in our community. I grew up as a Roman Catholic, attending church every Sunday with my mom, dad, and brother. Ever since sixth grade I have been attached to the hip to my best friend, Kelley, and am fortunate enough to attend college and live with her now. Hopefully, I can make my hometown proud and thank everyone for coming together to vote for me.
I’m sure they’re all very proud of you. So why did you decide to enter Star In A Bra?
I entered to spread awareness of woman’s beauty in all different shapes and sizes. I want to support girls who do not fit into media’s portrayal of “beauty.” I have seen, first hand, what one little comment can do to someone’s self esteem and their body image. I want girls to be comfortable in their own skin so we can put a halt to bullying and eating disorders. In order to do this, girls need to learn to love their bodies, and the curves that come along with them.
Sounds like a good enough reason as any; it’s great how so many of the contestants really want to make a different when it comes to women and self esteem issues. Why do you think people should vote for you?
People should vote for me because I want to win in order to spread awareness to others. I stand for more than just a curvy girl.. I’m a curvy girl who wants to inspire and educate other girls struggling with the pressures of today’s society. I want to be able to portray more healthy images in the media and be someone who young girls can look up to.
Good luck Katie!
