Miss Teen North Dakota International 2020 - Stella Kaster
You can find Stella anywhere from church to the bookstore to the art museum. This lady is very involved and won't let an opportunity pass without taking full advantage of it. Recently, she has been a part of the varsity cheer team, art club and ceramics, Knowledge Bowl, the Youth Medical Explorers program, Philanthropy and Youth, Club 3:16, Fusion Youth Group, and a lifeguard at the Family Wellness Center. She says, “It keeps her on her toes!”
In the midst of all this, Stella will always find time for her family. She grew up with two loving parents and two younger brothers. She says that without their love and support, she would not be who she is today. She was severely bullied as a child. All she remembers now is that “coming home every day to play ‘cops and robbers’ (a game created by the Kaster kids) with her brothers was what got her through that hard time.” Because of this hardship, Stella is currently working with brining awareness to bullying.
These hard times brought many tears and sorrows, but Stella says that without them she would, again, not be who she is today. She also says that God has “turned her sorrow to joy.” This is because of her faith. She believes that life is too hard to have your hope in anything, but God. Throughout this pageant, she has gained more confidence, not only in herself, but God too.
“Anyone can find the dirt in someone, so be the one to find the gold.”
