Wyoming is one of the least successful states, especially during 1980s and 1990s, at Miss Teen USA. The most successful of these was in 1985, when Emily Ernst placed first runner-up to Kelly Hu of Hawaii. More recently, Wyoming became successful, placing four times in 6 years.
“My mission is to show young women that anyone can be “Confidently Beautiful” without having to alter their image to match popular media standards.” said the beauty queen.
