She also has  her eyes on the Miss Louisiana USA title, which will chosen Oct. 23-24 in Lafayette. The winner will get to compete for the title of Miss USA.  “The date and location of next year’s Miss USA Pageant haven’t been announced yet,” she said, “but wouldn’t it be wonderful to be from Baton Rouge and get to compete in the Miss USA Pageant right in your own hometown!”  Miss USA is a preliminary to the Miss Universe Pageant.

Devin has lots of experience in beauty pageants.  She’s been a finalist for Miss Louisiana USA on three previous occasions and was 1st runner up in 2012.
