Madison Lynn Callaghan was crowned as the new Miss Grand USA 2021, at the end of the the coronation ceremony, held on 20th June 2021 in Rosemont, Illinois. She will represent the United States of America at Miss Grand International 2021. Madison succeeds Miss Grand USA 2020 Abena Appiah, who won the title of Miss Grand International 2020.
The 25-years-old beauty queen is a famous entrepreneur who is known for being the owner of several different beauty and fashion-related companies, including Bongani Swimwear, Veni Amavi Skincare, and Madison’s Pilates studio.
She is the founder of the Madison Callaghan Foundation, which works for children’s rights, providing them with educational materials, sporting equipment & scholarships. Her company, Bongani, is known for donating to the United Through Sport In South Africa foundation, where every swimsuit sold leads to a donation to the organization to help disadvantaged communities.
She stated that she intends to use the platform to end the war and violence against children, particularly those in foster care. The diva went on to say that, as the owner of two businesses in modern-day America, she understands the importance of having a strong foundation with family support, and that she would like to take this advocacy a step further and help those in need with the help of the Miss Grand USA platform and her foundation. Madison wants to bring urgency and the need for people to act and take steps to end war and violence for the future leaders of the country.
She is not a newbie in pageantry. She was a top 16 semi-finalist of Miss North Carolina USA 2020 whom she was awarded as Miss Photogenic.
