Excited to be able to highlight our next state titleholder. Nina Yu. Nina was Miss Metro's Outstanding Teen in 2015 and with the incredible support and guidance of the GDM team, she was fortunate enough to capture the title of Miss Iowa's Outstanding Teen as well. This board not only helped her in preparing for state and nationals, but they taught her life lessons that she continues to use. Now, a senior at New York University studying Marketing and Finance, she is excited to graduate next spring and has accepted an offer to work at American Express. In school, she's the treasurer for Beta Alpha Psi, a consulting director for EmpowerED Consulting, and an Orientation Leader. Confidence, poise, public speaking, and working hard to reach your goals were all qualities Nina developed through the Miss America program and she is truly grateful for the GDM team that always supported her!
