Mrs Connecticut International™ 2019


Debbie Mallick Manenté

 

what good habit do you wish you'd started earlier?
My father always suggested to start saving while young. No longer are the days where one can depend on a pension or social security for retirement, so I wish I had taken his advice to heart, and started saving money more aggressively at a younger age. I now put extra money aside. If I had only considered my morality a lot younger, maybe I would have been able to retire earlier than the national average.


what concerns do you have with the future?
According to Gallup polls and national labor trends, college students are said to lack important soft-skills, which help transition from college to career, seamlessly, and help retain employment over the long haul. I am concerned that with the lack of these soft-skills within the younger generations; due to overuse of social media, video games and negative influences; many jobs will go unfilled, which could lead to an economic disturbance and affect the entire America population.


what do you most enjoy about traveling?
From packing early, meeting new people, experiencing new cultures and foods, hearing inspiring stories and creating memories that last a lifetime, everything about traveling is exciting to me. I have a large bucket list, and each year I try to check off several places in which I could visit. I hope this year I can continue to cross off more things and continue to share those special times with family friends from around the world.


what do you like most about your age?
Age brings much wisdom and ability to “not let things ruffle my feathers.” As a veteran’s ambassador, career/guidance counselor, and associate director of career services at a state university, there will always be challenges. While practicing empathy, stellar time management, organization, and goal setting skills, I am now equipped to help all students and community leaders thrive. Perfecting these skills, which I am proud of, takes much experience and wisdom…things that all come with age.
