Ashleigh Lollie, 24, was crowned Miss Florida USA 2015 in July 2014. Ashleigh will have a few months to prepare for Miss USA 2015, where she hopes to be crowned by the reigning Miss USA, Nia Sanchez. We wish her all the best!
Lollie is a law student at Florida State University. Her goal is to become a family or real estate lawyer on Florida’s Emerald Coast. Ashleigh is currently working towards obtaining her private pilot’s license with her father.
“I think that the title really opens a lot of doors,” Lollie said. “You don’t always know what’s behind them, but it always certainly changes the direction of your life, and it gives you a chance to do a lot of amazing things.”
Over the past 13 years, Miss Florida USA has watched her grandmother age while suffering from Parkinson’s disease, which attacks the nervous system and causes a range of symptoms such as stiffness, tremors and slowed movements.
