Miss Oklahoma USA Olivia Jordan wins national crown
That’s how native Tulsan Olivia Jordan (Thomas) describes her first 72 hours as Miss USA.
On July 12, the 26-year-old Bishop Kelley alumna became the first Miss Oklahoma USA to wear the national crown.
The following day, the Los Angeles resident moved to New York City, where she will live during her reign.
Jordan says her acting and modeling career will take a backseat this year to advocate for diverse causes such as breast and ovarian cancer, Alzheimer’s disease and child sex trafficking.
“My parents taught me that what you do matters, but what you do for others matters most,” Jordan says.
“My dream has always been to have a voice and help inspire others.”
In the near future, she will compete for another crown: Miss Universe.
