She may not have brought home the Miss Universe crown, but Glastonbury resident and Miss USA, Erin Brady did the state and the nation proud at the pageant in Moscow Saturday.
While the crown went to Miss Venezuela, Gabriela Isler, Brady was no slouch making it to the final 10 in the international competition.
And what now for the insurance accountant-turned-beauty queen?
“I go back to New York and happily serve my term as Miss USA,” she said. “This has all been an experience of a life time.”
