On being crowned Miss Idaho USA 2022, Jordana took to his official social media to reveal her emotions in a post captioned, “It takes patience and a lot of faith but God’s timing is always on time. I am speechless when I think about the year ahead of me. For anyone out there doubting themselves. Trust the process. Work hard. Keep going. It took me 4 years wondering “what if” questioning if this dream was truly meant for me. I am blessed and honored to have the opportunity to serve and represent the state of Idaho this next year. I have MANY people to thank in the coming week. I couldn’t have done it without the amazing community I have been fortunate to have behind me throughout this journey. WE DID IT. We’re going to Miss USA.”
