TEEN AMERICAN NATION- ARIELLE SMITH
 

My name is Arielle Smith.
I am so excited and honored to be your very first Teen American Nation 2022.
I am 17 years old and I am from Portsmouth, Virginia. Here are some facts to get to know me better..

I am an undergraduate of Regent University majoring in theology. I plan to one day open a home for teen moms and hope to become an advocate for teens and teen moms.

I am actively involved with my community as I am a volunteer for my church and school.

I love giving back to my community and making a difference for younger generations.

I enjoy cooking, singing, dancing, running track, helping others, and spending time with my family.

After graduating I will continue to pursue my Bachelor’s degree at Regent University.

My ambition is to become a Christian therapist.

During my year as Teen American Nation, I plan to share my platform,the NorthWest center. This is a center for teen moms. This particular platform is a very personal one because I, myself, am a teen mom.

I have a very great support system, but I have come to realize that most young ladies in my predicament don’t have the same support system I do.  I want those young ladies to know that they are worth something and that they can make a difference in their community. That their mistake does NOT define who they are. That their babies are blessings and a reason to persevere through all of the hardships that comes with being a teen mom.

I plan to speak to youth throughout my state and visit other states across the country. With a platform so close to my heart I plan to help make a difference in many teen lives.

I am beyond excited for this year as it will be full of opportunities,traveling, and sharing my love for ANP all around the world.

MISS AMERICAN NATION- HAILEY SMITH

Hailey has been with the ANP system since 2016, previously holding the titles of Miss Florida American Nation and Miss Jamaica Culture Galaxy, and was crowned Miss American Nation 2022 on August 7 th at the Chateau Resort &  Conference Center in Tannersville, PA.
She was born and raised in Brandon, FL, and attended the University of South Florida where she graduated in 2017 with her Bachelor’s degree in Business Management.
She enjoys reading constantly, you will almost never find her without a book, even while at Tampa Bay Lightning hockey games (her favorite team since childhood).

When not reading, you can find her watching anime or hockey, ice skating, sewing, playing video games, going to the theater or listening
to music.

She is also known to randomly burst into song, make a pop culture reference or give a random fact.
Hailey’s platform is Mental Health Awareness. Suffering with Social Anxiety and Depression herself, she wants to advocate for the open discussion and treatment of mental health conditions, and for  fighting the stigmas that are generally associated with the topic of mental health.

She wants to lead by example and show that someone doesn’t have to be controlled by their mental health, and that just taking each challenge little by little, day by day can be a major step toward effectively living with mental health conditions.

She also enjoys volunteering, especially with the Feeding Tampa Bay organization, with whom she has been volunteering since high school. Hailey believes that the best thing someone can do for themselves is to be open and honest with who they are and what they enjoy!
“I cannot promise that I’ll always be perfect, but I will promise to show you me, and all that makes me who I am!”

MS. AMERICAN NATION- NICOLE SIBISKI 
 

Nicole Sibiski grew up on the enchanted island of Puerto Rico, where the sounds of coquis and crashing waves would cradle her peacefully to sleep as well as lay the foundation into her adulthood journeys. 

 

After graduating high school, she simultaneously pursued her dreams of university studies as well as acting and modeling. Nicole became a television host, model, and actress. She participated in several pageants bringing home some titles, which lead her into further television successions and modeling opportunities. Fastforwarding into time, Nicole’s fairytale dream came true when she married her soulmate, John Sibiski. Eventually, they moved to the City that Never Sleeps, New York, where they decided to raise their fur pups and three blessings~ Yazmine, John, and Isabella.

 

Nicole graduated with a Bachelor's Degree of Arts in Sociology and Bilingual Education, a Master’s Degree in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (T.E.S.O.L.) and completed two years of doctoral studies in Education Leadership. Upon completing her degrees, she graduated top of her class along with many prestigious awards and scholarships. Nicole believes in Albert Einstein’s famous quote, "It is the supreme art of the teacher to awaken joy in creative expression and knowledge," for as a teacher of education and a mother of three, Nicole expresses that it is her supreme passion to educate the minds, hearts, and souls of every child in her life in order to live a fulfilled life and to safely navigate through unexplored worlds. As a wife, sister, daughter, aunt, friend, teacher, and pageant title holder, it is her supreme art to provide an ear to listen, a hand to hold, and a heart to guide with love and with no judgement. Nicole served as an adjunct professor within a prestigious New York college and then transferred into the New York State Public School System, where she currently works as a full-time teacher in a disadvantaged, high-need community. She is a strong believer in making education accessible, equitable, diverse, authentic, and culturally and historically responsive. 

 

Nicole’s hobbies include traveling, swimming, dancing, and playing goofy games with her children and students. She enjoys spending her time participating in local, national, and international charitable events as well as giving back to her community. Nicole is an active volunteer with the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention and is the founder of her platform Geoffrey’s Voice. After a 20 year hiatus from pageantry in Puerto Rico, she is back strutting her walk on the runway and has brought home several state, national, and international titles. Nicole is beyond excited to be the National title holder as Ms. American Nation, 2022. Additionally, Nicole has modeled for several designers for New York Fashion Week and has appeared across multiple NYC billboards several times. Nicole enjoys modeling and pageantry because she is able to spend extra quality time with her two beautiful daughters and sister queens!
