NY's Lisa Drouillard to Compete for Miss Teen USA
- Wednesday, March 30, 2011 4:18 PM
Lisa Drouillard, the daughter of Haitian immigrants, was crowned Miss Teen New York in November and is hoping to be crowned national beauty champ in July.
"I feel like I've been living my dream every day," said Drouillard, 19, a St. Francis of Assisi High School grad.
"I feel like I haven't gotten there yet but I do know that I inspire every child in my neighborhood."
Drouillard - the daughter of a public school teacher and a nutritionist - grew up in the same house on Winthrop St. where she lives today with her parents and three older brothers.
Since winning the New York title in November, she has become the talk of the neighborhood - and a point of pride for Haitian immigrants desperate for good news after last year's earthquake.
