The 24-year-old Nia Sanchez who was Miss Nevada USA has just taken that meteoric leap to international fame as victor in this decades-old pageant. She was crowned the winner by outgoing titleholder Erin Brady on live television and she begins a new year as the title holder in the pageant owned by Donald Trump and will represent the United States in the Miss Universe pageant which Trump also owns. She is the fourth Latino to win in the 63 year history of the pageant.

The runner up was Miss North Dakota USA Audra Mari and as is per tradition, the two were nervously clutching each other as the winner was announced. Nia Sanchez wore a sexy strapless red mermaid evening gown with a high front split as she was crowned. In contrast, her swimsuit had been pearl white with which she wore beige platform pumps with spike heels.

We have seen so many beauty queens begin a reign only to have scandals surface; controversial political statements, nude photos, topless pictures, porno videos, arrest records and so on, but sometimes, a winner is just that, a winner. In other words, a young woman on the precipice of a new and exciting adventure who has goals and ambitions to impact lives, and not just look great in a bikini swimsuit and high heels.

As for her interview question she sailed forth beautifully as it was on an issue that she has much passion for. One of the judges, Rumor Willis, daughter of Bruce Willis and Demi Moore asked her about the high number (an appalling 19 percent) of college women who have become victims of sexual assault and why colleges sweep the issue under the rug and what she thought should be done about it.

Nia Sanchez confidently replied, “I believe that some colleges may potentially be afraid of having a bad reputation and that would be a reason it could be swept under the rug, because they don’t want that to come out in public.”

As for the details of the Nia Sanchez biography, she did indeed grow up in Las Vegas Nevada although she was born in Sacramento, California. As for her ancestry, she is half Mexican and her parents are divorced. She has also revealed that for a brief time, as a child she lived with her mother in a women’s shelter and as a result, as an adult has volunteered in shelters.

Also we find that she is officially a professional model. It’s not a sideline occupation; she is a bona fide pro and signed with TNG Models. As such measurements, height, 5’8″ and other details are public information. She also worked at Disneyland in Hong Kong, portraying a princess.

She is active on Twitter as well as on Instagram where she has shared many photos and videos. Her boyfriend is Daniel Booko, and actor, and she has posted pictures of him on Twitter and Instagram, and he has done the same.
