“I have a busy schedule and am constantly traveling so when I do have the time to grocery shop or prepare a meal, I make it a priority,” the 5’8? beauty queen, 26, tells PEOPLE. “However, I love sushi so I find myself eating out often for that!”
Karlie Hay, Miss Teen USA 2016, attended the Miss Texas USA Competition in Houston this weekend where she crowned the new winner, Nancy Gonzalez.
Karlie shared this photo to Instagram with the caption:
“Today, on the same stage where my own journey as Miss Texas Teen USA began, one young woman’s life will change forever – and just like me, her dream of winning the national title will come closer to becoming a reality. Over the past month, I’ve reflected on what it means to be #MissTeenUSA. For me, this year is about dedicating my time to giving back. I look forward to encouraging others to prioritize making an impact in their own communities. -Karlie”
