Olivia Argue was crowned Miss Arizona Teen USA 2013 on Sunday in Mesa.
She will represent her state at the Miss Teen USA Pageant. The pageant, co-owned by Donald Trump and NBC Universal, is usually webcast live from the Bahamas during the summer months.
Argue, 17, is from Scottsdale. She entered the pageant as Miss Phoenix Teen USA.
Among her school honors are the National Honor Society, Freshman Class President, Sophomore Class President, Student Body Public Relations Director, Sophomore Homecoming Queen, Kids for Kids Junior Club Officer and the French Honors Society.
Her favorite quotation is attributed to former First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt: “You gain strength, courage, and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face… Do the thing you think you cannot do.”
"I have been fortunate to have been born and raised in Arizona," she said in an interview last year with Arizona Foothills Magazine. "I have grown to love traveling and seeing different parts of the world and many cultures. Following my morals and beliefs, I strive to live every day to the fullest. I have found it important to remember my roots while gaining knowledge about the world. I have many goals in which I will strive to obtain within the upcoming years. I would love to have the opportunity to attend college in California before studying abroad. I cannot wait to see what the future holds."
She is a member of the Class of 2014 at Chaparral High School in Scottsdale.
