What is Role Models International?
Service, Sportsmanship, Academics, Talent, and Leadership make the 5 points of the Role Models International Star. Our members strive to be a role model in one or more of these areas. We are NOT a pageant, but we have a lot of pageant people who are members. We also have Pageant Partners. Plus occasionally we do have a contest where the winner can get a crown. However, we are much more than that. We are an all-inclusive club for people of all ages and genders.

Role Models International Brand Ambassador
My role as a role model and brand ambassador has been really exciting. I love helping others and giving support. I have been really busy with helping many different charities, causes and campaigns. I see life as something that we have to enjoy and embrace. I live every day to the max, doing what I can to make a difference.
I have really enjoyed being part of this wonderful organisation that Dawn has set up and I look forward to seeing what the future may hold.

Leadership, Community Service and Volunteerism are the principles Shawn Cunningham are trying to instill in the countless numbers of young people she'll encounter during her service as a multiple titleholder in the State of Maine.
Embarking on a statewide speaking tour, Shawn has traveled to many communities throughout the Pine Tree State spreading her message that through leadership and service individuals CAN make a difference...and empower themselves, their communities and subsequently America to change toward the better! In addition to her speaking tour, Shawn continues to meet with state dignitaries, civic leaders and community organizations on a slew of appearances.
Shawn's motto:"Succeed and Soar!!!"
Role Models International VIP Ambassador
Salina Ramirez was recently appointed to Role Models International VIP Ambassador. This title is chosen based on all of the qualities of a Role Model. This title will be hers for as long as she wants to be a Role Model!
Role Models International VIP Ambassador
Senaiyah Torres is our very first VIP Ambassador. She was surprised with this title at the Young American Miss International Pageant, held in June 2019.
“I believe that I would make a great leader because I’m so active in my community and school. I am a volleyball varsity co-captain and also a majorette captain. I love having both roles because I like to teach the girls new skills and to gain confidence. I also am a part of student council at my school. Being a part of this group is great because we do school spirit assemblies. We also do canned food drives and coat drives for kids at my school who need it the most. Finally, I volunteer in my community as much as I can. I go into schools and teach the students how to be kind and respectful. I love being able to help my community. I believe that being a leader means having a voice and expressing a powerful message and having confidence to do so. I believe that I have these qualities to be a leader.”
Ryanne Michaels, Team Leader in PA
“I try to do my best in all that I do, and want to encourage others to do the same.” She would like to set an example for others and motivate them to join Role Models International. Britney plans to do a monthly project and the first one is collecting cards for the elderly and kids “in the system”. In her words, this is what she is planning for 2019:
“January would be focused on collecting socks. March or April would be the special needs egg hunt that I got my town to approve. That’ll be an annual event. Some other ideas I have in mind that aren’t determined on dates/month yet would include collecting items for the children’s home, spreading word about childhood hunger and doing the annual food and toy collection, getting involved in the community by finding ways to make it better and give back more, help kids find more positive ways to use their time than getting into trouble, and even having a special needs group that’ll work alongside the other group so that they can work at their own pace. I also want to start a Thanksgiving dinner for those in need in November 2019 and am already reaching out to people about this to get the ball rolling. There’s so many things I have in mind, and as the funds are available my mom is going to help me start up my nonprofit to go along with my community group and all that we do. So, this will be a great opportunity for the youth in my area to get involved especially since most community involved groups we have are for adults not youth.”
Britney, Team Leader in PA
I would love to participate as a team leader for my area because I believe in the Role Model program and promoting girls who are making a difference. I am currently a PA director for the UNM PA pageant, a director for the Tiaras Loving Children special needs pageant system. My life is spent building kids to be the best they can be through my profession as a CEO of my company TB Children's Services which provides counseling, behavioral management, holistic therapy, tutoring, mindfulness, social groups, girls empowerment groups, and much more. I also am a scout leader for a special needs group, a special needs dance instructor, girls soccer coach, I also take in foster children and have adopted two children and on my way to 3. When I found this program I was excited to see such a positive way to promote positive relationships amongst young women. I would love to join as a team leader to help grow the program and arrange outings and activities such as bowling parties, painting events, museum visits, family dinners, and socials. There are plenty of places in this immediate area and throughout the state that could be used as meet up locations to arrange small to large group meetings. Looking forward to hearing from you!
