Cheslie states, “I was inspired to compete in pageants by my mom, April Simpkins, who was Mrs. North Carolina US 2002. I remember watching her win and going to appearances with her during her reign. She was involved in countless events because of her title — parades, speaking engagements, and I can’t even remember how many times I heard her sing the national anthem. Her title provided her with a platform to advocate for issues that were important to her and people listened.”

For months, my alarm rang daily at 4:45am so I could get in a morning workout. In the weeks leading up to my departure for Miss USA, I’d also come home and get in a second workout—30 to 45 minutes on the bike or elliptical. I gave up pasta, fried food, and dessert (with the occasional sweet treat on the weekends). I hated every second of my workout and nutrition regimen. But I’m thrilled that I felt confident and proud to strut my hard work across the Miss USA stage this week. One more day ‘til finals!!
