Former Miss International - Ava Hill

“one day you finally knew what you had to do and began…”
- Mary Oliver, The Journey

She is a survivor, a boss lady, a woman on a mission and Miss International 2019. Ava Hill is a believer that one crown can’t change the world but one crown changed her world forever. As a suicide attempt survivor and a worldwide ambassador for The Peyton Heart Project, Ava plans to make a change in the lives of others one heart at a time.

Ava began her partnership with The Peyton Heart Project in 2016 and is the first worldwide ambassador to be from the state of North Dakota. Her Platform, The Peyton Heart Project: Hearts for hope has reached over 25 states and 3 countries, 10,000 students, and she has personally made over 15,000 hearts. Not only does Ava dedicate her time to The Peyton Heart Project but she is a dedicated volunteer for American Foundation for Suicide Prevention. Ava has attended Out of the Darkness Walks across the country, raised thousands of dollars for suicide prevention, and has advocated mental health policies to multiple mayors and Governor Doug Burgum.

As if she’s not busy enough serving her community, Ava is also a business owner. She is a professional multimedia makeup artist and started Ava Hill Artistry at the age of 19 after graduating from Faces etc. of Minnesota. Since graduating she has had the opportunity to work on many feature films, TV shows, and commercials receiving many awards along the way. She prides herself as an educated artist who works in any medium from glam to gore.

Other than Miss International, Coach, is one of Ava’s favorite titles. Ava is going on her 5th year coaching her former team, the Kindred Vikettes. This team includes grades 4-12 and many of the varsity members she has taught since they were the age of 4. She not only enjoys watching them grow as dancers and become champions, she has enjoyed being a part of their lives watching them grow into incredible young women.

In her free time, when she has it, Ava enjoys spending time with her family, binge watching Netflix (especially Supernatural), and snuggling with her cat Pringles. You will never see her without a cup of coffee in her hand or not in high heels and she always has a book or two in her purse.

Ava is excited for her year as Miss International 2019 and can’t wait for the journey ahead. She is eager to continue representing The Peyton Heart Project on an international level and to partner with with International Pageant’s national platform American Heart Association: Go Red for Women.
