While in Las Vegas cheering on Miss New Jersey USA at the national Miss USA competition, Miss New Jersey Teen USA Gina Mellish shared a super positive message about body image.
Being here at Miss USA and having the privilege to be with my other Miss Teen USA 2016 queens, I have finally come to terms with feeling confidently beautiful in my own skin. While I don't have the flattest stomach, the thinnest thighs, or the strongest arms, I am so happy with who I am and so comfortable in my own skin. I am so proud to be a part of an organization that promotes a healthy body image and encourages us to be all shapes and sizes. It isn't about having the best body, it's about being the best version of yourself and living a healthy lifestyle. I want other girls to love the skin you're in and never be ashamed of who you are!???? #missnjteenusa #missteenusa #muo #jerseyforthewin #confidentlybeautiful

Props to this Oceanport resident for making the best of her experience!
Gina looked absolutely amazing for every Miss USA-related event. Her hair and makeup killed it! (And I need to know where she got that nude choker from. Need!)
