Eleana Frangedis, the 18-year-old Greek-American from Clearwater, Fla. who was crowned Miss Teen America 2012 earlier this year said she’s proud of the title, but more so of her origin and one day would like to live in Greece. She has made a good impression not just with her beauty, but her intelligence.
She is going to study Biomedical Engineering while staying active in the community and said she especially loves Greek culture and Easter celebrations.
According to an interview in Real Life magazine, she will be in Athens to take part in the 30th Athens Classic Marathon on Nov. 11 and was photographed for the campaign Marathon for Greece, which aims to change Greece’s image abroad.
She said her dream is to eventually be able to buy a house in Greece and stay here with her family, but for now her obligations as the Teen Queen of America and education will keep her busy.
