Brittany Stenovitch, 19, is a lifelong resident of Cranston, Rhode Island, and is the daughter of Edward and Joyce Stenovitch and older sister to Eddie. She is currently a sophomore studying Fashion Merchandising and Retail Marketing at Johnson and Wales University in Providence, Rhode Island. An active member of the Phi Sigma Sigma Sorority, Brittany describes herself as responsible. While on the Dean’s List, she works two part time jobs as a hostess at PapaRazzi Restaurant for the past two years and at her mother’s hair salon as an assistant.
Brittany has been dedicated and committed to various charitable organizations that are close to her heart such as the Rhode Island Food Bank, Rhode Island Blood Center, Boys and Girls Club, National Kidney Foundation, Make A Wish Foundation, Toys for Tots, the American Cancer Society and the Gloria Gemma Breast Cancer Resource Foundation. She won the Miss Rhode Island Teen USA 2012 Humanitarian Award last year for collecting 192 canned goods that were donated to the Rhode Island Food Bank, and again this year for collecting 186 canned goods.
When Brittany is not busy with school or work she can be found in the kitchen baking her famous award-winning funfetti cupcakes! She also loves spending time with her family and friends, or playing with her two dogs, Holly and Bruno.
Competing in pageants has been only a recent part of her life after deciding to compete on the advice of her mother in the Miss Rhode Island Teen USA 2012 pageant last year. She placed second runner up and from that point she caught the “pageant bug”. With the help and support of her beloved pageant coach, Erika Kruse Weller, and her family and friends she decided to compete for the 2013 Miss Rhode Island USA title.
Brittany hopes that her year as Miss Rhode Island USA will act as a stepping stone to her future, and lead her to her goal to become a famous international clothing stylist. She plans to enjoy and utilize every opportunity that comes her way in her quest to make the state of Rhode Island very proud when she competes next year for the Miss USA title, and hopefully bring the title home again!
