Miss Teen North Dakota International 2018 - Paris Arnhalt
“Perhaps this is the moment for which you were created”, Esther 4:14 speaks about being put into certain positions in your life at Gods perfect timing.
Paris is the youngest of four girls. She has two nieces and two nephews, and two wonderful parents. She enjoys volunteering in children’s ministry and also volunteering on the Sunday morning production team at Bethel Church in Fargo. She is a senior at Park Christian High School in Moorhead, Minnesota and plans on attending North Dakota State University in the fall for a double major in Finance and Accounting with a minor in either Business Administration or Business Management. She aspires to become either a CFO of a corporation or a branch manager of a bank. She is an assistant cheer coach at Park Christian for our JV and Varsity squads. Also, she is involved with PaY (Philanthropy and Youth) which is an organization that is in area high school and they are able to get to know local non-profits and select a few that we would like to donate money to. She has also been a member of National Honor Society since sophomore year.
Paris has enjoyed cheer since a very young age, it all branched from going to elementary cheer camps through Park Christian. As a freshman, she joined the varsity cheer squad and was on the squad for two years, cheering for football and basketball. She is also pursuing college cheer at NDSU, so she is doing private coed stunting practices here in Fargo. Cheer is something that has not only strengthened her physically but also mentally and emotionally. She has learned how to overcome relationships with others and also made some of her very best friends through cheer, which is why she decided to come back and coach this year. She wants to be a part of these young ladies’ journeys throughout high school and be able to help them grow, not only in cheer but as an individual.
Along with that, she has also gone to Bethel Church in Fargo since she was born. Being able to grow up with a church family has been an immense blessing to her and something she wouldn’t trade for the world. Having a solid faith foundation is a huge part of her life that has shaped her into the young woman she is today and taught her how to love and serve others, but more than that it has taught her that a relationship with Christ is the only thing worth pursuing in life. All the things she has now and all the opportunities she has been given have all come from and through him, which means in return her goal is to give him all the glory and praise.
She is so excited and honored to have the opportunity to be the next Miss Teen North Dakota International and speak on the Power of a Wish through Make-a-Wish.
One wish at a time,
Miss Teen North Dakota International 2018
