Brown was born and raised in Boise, Idaho. She attended Boise State University where she graduated in 2016 with a Bachelor’s degree in Supply Chain Management. During her time at the university, Brown was a member of Phi Eta Sigma Co-Ed Business Fraternity and the National Society of Collegiate Scholars. She was also on the Dean’s List and a sister of the Alpha Gamma Delta sorority.
Brown started her pageant journey in 2016 when she entered her first pageant, the 2016 Miss Idaho United States Pageant. She won the title of Miss Idaho United States 2016. She then went on to compete in the 2016 Miss United States Pageant.
After crowning her successor, Brown took time to develop her own beauty company, Marquess Beauty. The company launched in 2017 and currently sells reusable silk and mink lashes. Brown’s dream is to expand this into a full cosmetics line and chain of salons.
Brown returned to the pageant stage when she registered for the 2019 Miss Idaho USA and Teen USA pageants. Representing West Boise, Brown was crowned Miss Idaho USA 2019 on September 30, 2018 at Boise State University located in Boise, Idaho.
Brown’s journey to the crown has not been easy. Shortly after being crowned Miss Idaho USA 2019, Brown revealed her struggles with weight and body image in a message posted on the organization’s Facebook page.
“Back at 200lbs, being crowned Miss Idaho and having the chance to grace the Miss USA stage seemed like a pipe dream,” Brown said in the statement. “Today, I’m proof that you have the power to do whatever you set your mind to. If you want it bad enough and are willing to put in the work: the world is yours for the taking. Learning to love myself, live a healthy life and take care of the body I’m in doesn’t ever stop. It’s a daily challenge and comes with finding who you are on the inside and being content with her before you can truly feel beautiful on the outside.”
Brown will go to compete for the title of Miss USA 2019.
She was a contestant on the first season of ABC’s, “The Proposal.” In 2015, she attended a summer business program at Aarhus University located in Aarhus, Denmark. She enjoys spending time outdoors and playing video games in her free time.
