It was an a trying year for the Miss USA pageant. After Donald Trump surrounded the pageant in
controversy (surprise surprise…) I was so proud to watch the state titleholders and pageant community come together
to make it clear with Miss USA stands for. My squad of states this year included Miss Massachusetts, Miss New
Hampshire, Miss Maine, Miss California, and Miss Georgia.

Fun fact! The Miss USA 2015 winner, Olivia Jordan from Oklahoma, was Miss United States World back in 2013
and competed for Miss World in custom April Soderstrom earrings. Congrats Olivia!
