Mrs. New Jersey International®

Claire Pavlinec - 2nd Runner-Up

1.When you hear the saying "be the change" what comes to your mind first?
My children because they are a direct reflection of myself. I teach them to be thoughtful, caring and hard working individuals and when they exemplify these qualities, my heart shines with pride. I am proud of everything that they do and for all that they are and THEY ARE AMAZING!

2.How would you describe your husband?
Mother Teresa who sacrificed everything to help those less fortunate . She wrote my favorite quote: "It is not the magnitude of our actions but the amount of love that is put into them that matters." She lived her life with love of others and was a wonderful role model.

3.If you could revisit one memory as a child in your mind, what would it be and why?
My photo albums which hold every special memory of my life. I delight in paging through them and reminiscing about the special moments they hold. There are special people within their pages that have gone to Heaven but I can still see their beautiful smiling faces whenever I choose...PRICELESS!

4.How would someone describe you when you were in high school?
"Claire Bear" - I grew up in the generation of "Care Bears"...need I say more.

5.If money did not matter.. what would you buy for your husband and why?
Summer, I love going to the beach and boardwalk with my family. The smell of the salt water and the taste of zeppoli's on the boardwalk are tantalizing. I love barbecuing in the yard and catching fireflies with my kids. I dream of summer. :)
