    Miller is no stranger to competing for the title of Miss USA and has been 1st runner-up twice at the MISS OKLAHOMA USA® competition. She says those moments challenged her and allowed her to become comfortable with the woman she is today. Through #FindingMiss52, she will finally have the opportunity of competing on the MISS USA® stage and feels the search has provided her with yet another chance to fulfill her dream. Miller previously studied at Wichita State University and has a bachelor’s degree in marketing with minors in management and Spanish.

    Over the course of a month, the #FindingMiss52 announcement and search sparked national attention and encouraged women across the country to apply. An expert judging panel selected the 10 finalists after interviewing the top contenders to find women who embody The Miss Universe Organization’s mission to be Confidently Beautiful. Fans were able to vote for their favorite finalist this past week which ultimately determined the winner who will compete at MISS USA®.

    Pia Wurtzbach now ‘Madrina’ of Latino Commission on AIDS

    Thestandard.com.ph – Miss Universe Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach adds another milestone in her exciting reign. She was recently named the newest Madrina (patroness) of the Latino Commission on AIDS, lending her voice to the important cause of educating the world about AIDS prevention and giving support to her Miss Universe advocacy to raise AIDS awareness among the youth.

    Pia spoke eloquently during the Latino Commission on AIDS Cielo Gala calling for an end to the stigma surrounding HIV/AIDS. The Madrina title followed her being named in February as official ambassador of HIV prevention by the New York-based Aid for Aids organization.
