Miss Rhode Island USA 2019
Nicole Pallozzi, 22 years old lives in Providence, Rhode Island where she was born and raised. In 2014, Nicole graduated from La Salle Academy where she was part of the Varsity Competition Cheerleading and Varsity Track and Field Teams, and was a member of the Rhode Island Allstate teams in both of those sports.
Nicole is a 2018 graduate from The University of Rhode Island where she obtained a Bachelor’s of Science in Business Administration degree with a focus in Marketing. Throughout her 4 years at URI, she got immensely involved on campus while maintaining Dean’s List. She started as a Campus Tour Guide and then made her way up to the executive board as the Public Relations Coordinator. In this role, she was in charge of planning and executing Open House in the Fall and Welcome Days in the Spring for over 7,000 prospective students and their families while overseeing a team of over 100 tour guides. Nicole was also an Orientation Leader and a URI 101 Mentor. It was an amazing experience for her to see first year students come full circle from giving them a campus tour, to making them feel at home at Orientation, to ultimately making sure they adjusted to their classes as a URI 101 Mentor.
During Nicole’s junior year of college, she had the opportunity to study abroad for four months in Florence, Italy where she traveled to 6 countries and 21 European cities. Throughout her time abroad, she fully immersed herself into the Italian culture by studying the language, taking cooking classes, visiting local museums, and she even rode a Vespa throughout Tuscany! She also had the opportunity to go paragliding in Switzerland, white water rafting in Croatia, and climb Mt. Vesuvius. Throughout the midst of all of the captivating sites, alluring cities, hidden gems, and incredible food, she learned how much this small, beautiful world has to offer and is excited to see where her future travels take her!
Nicole started volunteering with Best Buddies in High School; she visited Meeting Street School in Providence, RI with fellow classmates. She would do arts and crafts and play games with children of all ages and abilities. She also volunteered for the annual Best Buddies Telethon. Her Uncle Mickey inspired her to get involved with this organization because he was born with cerebral palsy and even though he cannot walk or talk, he never let his disability define him as an individual. He inspires her everyday to live life to the fullest and to never take anything for granted. He recently motivated Nicole to get involved with the Special Olympics where she was able to watch her Uncle cross the finish line in his electric wheel chair race and win first place!
Nicole is currently a Project Coordinator at Kantar Millward Brown, one of the world’s leading global marketing research companies that focuses on advertising effectiveness, strategic communication, media and brand equity research. She works with many local and global brands, including 90% of the world’s leading brands to help define brand purchase, develop winning advertising, engage consumers, and drive brand growth. Kantar Millward Brown has 85 offices in 55 cities and Nicole hopes to travel and utilize her global marketing expertise throughout the county and world.
Since 12 years old Nicole has been modeling and has walked in numerous seasons of StyleWeek as well as New York Fashion Week. Many talented photographers, throughout Rhode Island and Massachusetts, have photographed her. Nicole has been committed to the Miss Rhode Island USA pageant ever since 2014 when she competed for Miss Rhode Island Teen USA for the first time and placed in the Top 15 in her very first pageant. She then placed in the top 5 in Miss Rhode Island Teen USA 2015. Last year, she competed as a Miss for the first time and placed in the Top 11! On September 9th 2018, her lifelong dream of becoming Miss Rhode Island USA finally came true. Pageantry has taught Nicole the desire, dedication, discipline, and determination needed to succeed at any goal in life. She is extremely excited to begin her journey as Miss Rhode Island USA 2019.
