A Puerto Rican who moved to Ohio when she was five, Sthephanie Miranda was crowned Miss Ohio USA 2020 on 9 November 2019 and represented Ohio at the Miss USA 2020 pageant in Memphis Tennessee. She later made the top five at Miss Puerto Rico Universe 2021.
Sthephanie Marie Miranda was born in San Juan, Puerto Rico and moved to Ohio at the age of five. Growing up in a Puerto Rican household influenced her strong relationship with her grandmother and made it even more devastating when she was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease.
Being one of her grandmother’s primary caregivers has inspired her to fight for a cure and document her life and memories on her own YouTube channel! As an influencer and aspiring actress, she is passionate about connecting with her generation, traveling, photography, and of course sharing her Puerto Rican culture!
She is looking forward to bringing her Latina passion to the job of Miss USA and use her year to be a voice for Alzheimer’s.
The on-stage moments, the tension of the final two and the glory of the crowning, here are Sthephanie’s state pageant photos.
Lights, camera, action! Professional photoshoots are one of the perks that comes from winning a title.
There’s nothing better than watching a contestant progress from year to year! Here’s a look back at Sthephanie’s previous pageant photos.
