A Special Message to the Community
Hello, my name is Maureen Montagne and I am an aspiring journalist who has been bitten by the pageant bug. Miss Arizona USA was my 4th pageant and my first big win. Previously I had won 1st runner up at Mutya ng Pilipinas in 2013 and it was during this pageant in the Philippines that I discovered my love of pageants.
I am so honored and blessed to be representing the Grand Canyon state at Miss USA during June of 2015. The official dates of the Miss USA pageant will be released in early 2015.
In order to prepare for the pageant I will be diligently working on my body, poise, and walk. I think the most crucial factor in being a beauty queen in self-discipline. In order to put your best foot forward you need to prepare for months ahead of time mentally and physically.
I can't wait to embark on this journey as Miss Arizona; I will be attending several events this year such as the Super Bowl and will be helping out a plethora of charities such as my main charity, Assistance in Healthcare.
Serving as Miss Arizona is not all about the glitz and glamour of wearing a crown, but rather helping out the community and drawing attention to groups that are in need. I can't wait to make Arizona proud this year; I couldn't have accomplished any of this without the love and support from my family and friends.
