Hailing from Wausau, Wisconsin, she wowed the judges with her beauty and brains – making it clear that while she loves competing, her number one passion is science.

“I am so proud to be a woman working in nuclear engineering. It’s not easy, nor is it a simple road to follow, but it’s worth it,” she wrote on Instagram in June.

“I find joy in the little things, and when I understand something so small that makes something as big as a nuclear power plant work, it just fills me with life. To the young woman, the little girl, the high school student who wants to be an engineer but is struggling for whatever reason: remember you are pioneers in this field. Each woman smooths, a little more, the path for the next. I’m so excited to work with each and every one of you,” said the 20-year-old.

When asked by a follower what she wants her ‘legacy’ to be in July, the self-proclaimed ‘nuclear nerd’ said: ‘The best answer I have is a nuclear analogy. I want to be the neutron fired into uranium to start the fission process in a power plant. I want to be the person who inspires the next three people to go on and make strong decisions. I want to be the person who causes that change in people and affects the next generations.”
