Our 2015 International Junior Miss Teen is Victoria Piekut from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. She is a Marketing major at the University of Pittsburgh, as well as a long time opera student.
Her first time competing with IJM was in 2015 at the International Pageant as the Miss Pennsylvania Teen. She was thrilled to win the International title as well as the International Talent competition. Victoria has been a Youth Ambassador for The Dysautonomia Youth Network of America (DYNA) for eight years, creating a fundraiser called “Pops for POTS”. (POTS is a form of Dysautonomia that affects 1 in every 100 teens, including herself.) She was honored to be acknowledged on the floor of the Pennsylvania House of Representatives for her accomplishments, as well as speaking there on POTS Awareness.
Victoria is a piano player, opera singer, and professional model. Her modeling portfolio includes national covers and runway experience for companies such as Highmark Blue Cross Blue Shield, Philip Pelusi, Fisher Price, Jo-Ann Fabrics, and Macy’s. She most recently was featured in the first issue of Bella Gladys Magazine
