Miss District of Columbia International®

Melissa Rose Deedy

1.Words I live by are:
Words I live by are “ It happened for a reason”. In my life, there have been many challenges thrown my way that at the time I did not understand. Looking back on all those hard times, challenges, and all those moments of weakness, I realize it has made a stronger and a more powerful young woman. To this day, I believe and live by the fact if those things did not happen, I would not be where I am today nor be as motivated to accomplish my goals.

2.What are your pet peeves?
Ironically, one of my pet peeves is pet hair on specifically black leggings! If I’m not in a pair of sweatpants or pajama pants while relaxing or at school, I am for sure in a pair of black leggings. That being said nothing bothers me more than having my cat or dogs hair all over them. This is why I have about 10 lint rollers all throughout my house. Also is it just me or do pets only love cuddle when you’re wearing articles of clothing that show there hair the most.

3.How do you stay organized?
My way of staying organize is the organized chaos method. Which means from the outside looking in it looks like I’m disorganized but really everything has a Place and everything has a time. This is why I can’t rely on my friends nor anyone else cleaning my room because while there may be a few things on the floor, that’s my organized chaos and that’s how I keep track of things.

4.How do you relax?
Dance is one of my biggest passions in life. Not only is it one of my favorite pastime activities but it’s also how I relieve stress. No matter how I’m feeling each day I know I can rely on dance to express any emotion I’m feeling. This is not only a great way for me to work on my dance technique work, but also a great way for me to relax and distress at the end of the day.

5.What is your dream job and why?
My dream job is to be in the United States Army working as either a Military Operation Specialist and or a Military Police Officer with a specialty in Infantry. I’m proud to say that I am one step closer to this goal as I am a ROTC three-year scholarship winner and in February of next year, I will take my oath into the United States Army. In addition to this, my dream job in the civilian world would be a Swat Team Medic as I’ve always loved, providing care to patients as a CNA and the idea of tactical medication.
