Amanda Torchia was crowned Miss Connecticut USA 2021 on 6th June 2021 at the Hartford/Windsor Marriott Airport Hotel in Windsor, Connecticut. She was crowned by her predecessor Miss Connecticut USA 2020 Chelsea Demby at the end of the event finale.

The 25-year-old, Afghan-Italian diva is the founder of the youth program called Educate to Create and is extremely passionate about the things she has taken up in her life. For Amanda, winning the title is a second thing, but being able to set specific goals and find the courage and power within yourself to accomplish those goals is what matters to her.

Amanda has always encouraged young women and girls to participate at beauty pageants if they want to and explains that the competition might look intimidating at first, but it’s completely worth it. "In the end, a title only lasts for a year – but the friendships, self-discovery, and memories will last a lifetime. For young ladies who want to model or compete in pageants, the first step is having confidence in yourself and believing that you can do anything you set your mind to. If you believe in yourself, you are capable of such amazing things!” she shared.
