I'm Augostina Mallous, Miss New Jersey's Outstanding Teen 2017. Ever since I was a little girl my parents raised me to never let anything stop me from achieving my goals and following my dreams. I have been a dreamer for as long as I can remember. If anyone asked me to define myself I would say that I am a dreamer. I've had dreams of pursuing a career on Broadway, I've had dreams of pursuing a career in the medical field, and currently I am dreaming about attending New York University and obtaining a doctorate in medicine and hopefully becoming a pediatric surgeon. This is just an example of how much I'm a dreamer, and how dreams can really impact my life and how I live.
