Vivica Lewandowski’s journey to Miss Illinois Teen USA began many years ago. Playing with her mom’s Miss Illinois USA crown as a child created a desire within her to compete one day.
Vivica is a founder of the nationally known charity, Chicago Charity Clays, which has raised over $2 million for veterans' PTSD research, family therapy, and marriage counseling. This has turned her into a big advocate for mental health awareness and she enjoys sharing about her philanthropic efforts online, hoping to inspire others to get involved. Vivica is a driven person, and has been learning to speak, write, and read in Mandarin Chinese for eight years. She has great respect for Chinese people and culture.
This Fall, she’ll be a first-generation University student. Vivica was also a professional ballerina in Chicago throughout middle/high school, and a Presidential Scholar award recipient.
