The newly crowned beauty queen posed for shutterbugs post her crowning and gleefully expressed her concerns with the paparazzi. The wonderful diva, Ariane stated: “I grew up homeless a lot of my life, in and out of foster care, different homes, kind of grew up without a lot of hope. And I wish that when I was younger I had someone to tell me, ‘you know, hey, you can do this, you know, follow your dreams.’ And that was something I had to learn on my own, but I hope that with this title I can, you know, share that story with as many people as I can.”

Ariane Audett also expressed: “I have an exciting year ahead of me! I will be preparing to represent the state of Alaska at the Miss USA national pageant late in the summer. I will be using my title to promote the national platform, Breast and Ovarian Cancer Prevention and Awareness, in addition to helping with other charitable causes. I will also be focusing on helping homeless youth and those from disadvantaged backgrounds to pursue success by sharing my own personal story and continuing to work with local organizations. “

The beauty queen also stated that throughout this year, there will be many expenses that will need to come out of her own pocket during her year of reign and in preparing to compete for the title of Miss USA 2016.  Since Ariane is a full time college student, she does not get to work as many hours as she would like to. To overcome this dilemma, she has come forward with an appeal to donation! With such an enthusiastic mind and devoted heart do you believe Alaska can win its first Miss USA crown this year?
