The following year saw her come back to compete for the crown again but then again victory was not hers.
This did not dampen her spirit as she showed up the third time for Miss North Carolina 2019 where she eventually emerged first. This victory earned her the right to represent North Carolina at Miss USA 2019 where she emerged winner again.
In the year 2019. she started working with Extra as a correspondent.
