Miss Hmong Wisconsin

Paj Nyiag Thoj, Miss Hmong Wisconsin 2018 is an open and friendly young women whom may talk a little bit too much but that is because she just loves people and making friends. On her free time, she enjoys playing the piano and guitar, although as she eloquently puts it “not very good at it.”

I’m also very geeky and love to do geek stuff. Another thing I enjoy doing is singing. However, my singing voice should not be heard for fear of everyone becoming deaf. I have a very strong personality that will not waver due to anyone’s opinion. With that, I am very ambitious and stubborn. If I really set my mind on something I am passionate about and want to accomplish, I will not rest until it is perfect. If I want to do something, I will do it and no one will be able to stop me. I stand up for what I believe in and will not back down for fear of criticism. If we fear being criticized we will never be able to make a change.

My dad’s favorite saying is “Sauv muaj ntuj, hauv muaj av. Tus neeg phem yeej tsis yeej tus neeg zoo” (“There is a sky above, and land beneath. Those who are evil will never beat those who are good”). When you commit a sin even if there is no one to see, there is the sky and the land who are witnesses to your crime. Therefore, I strive to be the best version of myself everyday. Even if there is no one around I will do what I believe is right otherwise I would no longer be me. To me, good will always prevail even in the sight of evil. My mom had always told me “Tsis txhob saib dej ua ntu saib neeg ua plhu”(“Don’t judge water by its tides and people by their face”). From that, I learned to treat everyone equally. Even if I don’t know you, I will treat you like one of my good friends because I honestly believe everyone is good in their own way.

Ever since I was a child, my mom had always told me stories to help me fall asleep. My mind would be filled with stories about fantasy characters and magical worlds. As a child, my feet were never on the ground since my head was always in the clouds. I would always day dream about being in another world and interacting with others from that world then I would use those thoughts to write different stories. Stories were a way of me creating my own world to escape to. Which made my stories quite personal to me, so I never really shared them unless I had to for a school assignment.

Originally, I went to school with the major Biology. I wanted to become a cardiologist. But no matter how well I did, I was never really satisfied or passionate about becoming a scientist. After much thinking, I realized my love for reading and writing never really faltered throughout the years. With that, I decided that I would use my passion for writing to become an author and publish my own stories for others to ponder about. I am excited for others to experience the world in which I live in inside my mind.

Over the years, I have learned to build a very thick skin. Therefore, I am a very emotionally strong person but I also have a very sympathetic heart for others. I truly love my Hmong people and I feel their pain. I was not given the title Miss Hmong Wisconsin to be a pretty figure with a smiling face. I was given this title to help my Hmong community. Therefore, I will use the opportunity bestowed upon me to fix things in the Hmong community that I truly believe needs fixing. A year is too short, but I am optimistic that you all will support me in my future endeavors.

Sincerely,

Paj Nyiag Thoj, Miss Hmong Wisconsin
