Kaliegh Ryann Garris
MISS teen USA 2019
Kaliegh Garris was crowned Miss Teen USA 2019 this past April becoming the second representative from Connecticut to win the title. Kaliegh made the decision to go natural with her hair several years prior to Miss Teen USA not knowing she would make history during the pageant because of it. The 18-year-old New Haven native now continues to challenge beauty stereotypes and encourage all women to be confident in their natural beauty. Kaliegh will attend Southern Connecticut State University in the fall, and with an interest in medicine, plans to concentrate on obtaining her nursing degree.
