Thank you for the oppertunity of being Miss Teen International 2016... for those who do not know me here is a quick summary!

Wednesday, September 7, 2016
Hello Everyone! I would first like to say thank you for this life changing opportunity! My name is Garin Harris, Miss Teen International 2016, it still sounds funny saying that. My parents would say that I am a very creative person, and I give that credit to my mom. I had my first dance class at the age of two and have been a ballet dancer ever since! I am also an electric violinist who believe it or not has been playing since I was eighteen months old. Even though it sounds crazy, I promise you it's true! I also have a passion for making youtube videos, and even developed my own app to help those who experience pain on a daily basis!

It is quite amazing how everything in my life ties together, and I thank God for that everyday! It was through volunteerism and my own program Dancing Through the Pain where I learned what my dream job would be. Throughout the years of me teaching my program I have been able to work hand and hand with Child Life Specialists. So, I will be attending Olivet Nazarene University to major in Social Work, to become a Child Life Specialist in a Children’s Hospital. I believe it will be a very difficult but rewarding job. Seeing the children's smiling faces after visiting them is one moment I will never forget.

I am passionate and dedicated to all of the things I do! With a positive attitude and perseverance I believe you can do anything! I plan to use every opportunity I am given this year to to serve the American Heart Association, U.S. Pain Foundation, and everyone that I come in contact with. Here is one thing I would like all of us to remember: “Success is not measured by what you accomplish but by the opposition you have encountered, and the courage with which you have maintained the struggle against overwhelming odds.” - Orison Swett Marden
