Heather Elwell, 26, was crowned Miss Maine USA 2015 in November 2014. Previously, she was the first runner-up at Miss Maine USA 2014. For her the competition was “quite a good sport”. Heather will have a few months to prepare for Miss USA 2015, where she hopes to be crowned by the reigning Miss USA, Nia Sanchez. The Pageant will be held on July 12, 2015 in Baton Rouge. The winner will represent the US at Miss Universe 2015.
“When I first started competing in pageants, I did it because it looked like fun.”
The beauty queen lives and works at Down East Magazine in Portland, Maine. Growing up, she spent most of her time on a boat with her family in West Bath, ME. Heather has a love for the outdoors and two of her favorite hobbies include fishing and hiking.
When warm weather is not around, Heather can be found performing one of her seven instruments. She was chosen as one of seven flautists to attend Florida State University’s College of Music where she obtained two college degrees in Music and Economics.
“I plan to use my year as Miss Maine USA 2015 to break the mold of what others don’t see, and that is a woman who is genuine and works hard. “
She now actively volunteers at the Children’s Hospital to perform music as a type of therapy to children with cancer.
