For many pageant contestants, pageantry is their first choice for scholarships. But that wasn’t the case for Miss Alaska 2015, Zoey Grenier…
You see, Zoey was a biathlon athlete… And a pretty darn good one. Good enough to win three championships in the International Arctic Winter Games! But unfortunately, Zoey injured her shoulder and that meant she’d have to find another way to earn scholarships for a college education.
That’s when the biathlon ski champion became a pageant contestant.
And we’re sure glad she did! Zoey Grenier is a one-of-a-kind personality with a huge heart (hear for yourself on her podcast here)! And frankly, the fact that the Miss America Organization is a viable alternative for women like Zoey, means pageants are relevant today!
Even though she’s had to take a year off of biathlon to fulfill her duties as Miss Alaska, we know (and she knows), the experiences she’s gained over the past year will pay massive dividends down the road.
Zoey Grenier – Thank you for allowing your life to take a crazy detour – and letting us get to know you. I know many Junkies would agree – We’re better off because you took a chance on pageantry. 🙂
And now – Which one of these ladies do we think has the best chance of being named Miss Alaska 2016?
