We are proud to feature our state titleholders our first Miss Iowa was Nicole Kelly and she was our first ever Miss Metro.
“Hello, My name is Nicole and I was Miss Metro 2013 and had the privilege of winning the title of Miss Iowa that same year. Pageantry reshaped every aspect of my life. Since my time competing, I have gone on to speak professionally about disability all around the country. My passion has become educating schools, universities, and corporations ways they can think more inclusively about the diversity of disabled bodies. Just last month I had the honor of speaking at both Microsoft and Google! How cool, right? The truth is, without pageantry I would have never had these opportunities. Pageants gave me confidence to take a platform and share it with confidence. I am so thankful for the title of Miss Metro as it changed the trajectory of my life forever. Much love to my pageant family as I am forever grateful to have you in my life.”
