Cora Lynn Griffen was crowned Miss Georgia USA 2021 on 20th February 2021 at The Avalon in McDonough. She was crowned by her predecessor Miss Georgia USA 2020 Alyssa Beasley at the end of the event finale.

The 25-year-old, diva is an Auburn University alum with a pre-law and pre-med degree. Cora has a heart for empowering young women. She describes, “I created an initiative in 2020 – ‘Beautifully Purposed’ that equips young women to thrive through life’s challenges while maintaining a positive view of themselves and to own their individuality. I launched it with the Girl Scouts of Atlanta in November and we had a virtual seminar regarding self-esteem and how to maintain it throughout difficulties. Young girls are my heart, because I remember how difficult it was for me after losing my father (Michael Wright) suddenly. It really took a toll on me growing up and it has been cathartic to pour into these young women as I found my voice.”

Cora also worked closely with Children’s Miracle Network and anti-bullying campaigns. She wants to use the platform to do the same and is looking forward to represent Georgia at Miss USA 2021.
