Miss Utah USA Noelia Voigt, 23, was crowned Miss USA 2023 at the Grand Sierra Resort in Reno on Sept. 29. She succeeds North Carolina’s Morgan Romano, who took on the role after original winner R’Bonney Gabriel became Miss Universe 2022.
Miss Hawaii USA Savannah Gankiewicz was awarded first runner-up, Miss Wisconsin USA Alexis Loomans was second runner-up, Miss Pennsylvania USA Jasmine Daniels was third runner-up, and Miss Texas USA Lluvia Alzate was fourth runner-up.
Voigt is a licensed esthetician, certified lash technician and model from Park City, Utah. Her mother is from Venezuela. She will represent USA in Miss Universe 2023 to be held in El Salvador on November 18.
"I am honored to be the first Venezuelan-American woman to hold the title of Miss Utah USA, and I am truly looking forward to breaking barriers and bridging the gap between communities by being able to speak Spanish and connect with the large Hispanic population in Utah," she wrote on Instagram.
This year’s pageant saw Laylah Rose as the new Miss USA president.
