The 16-yer-old reigning queen, who is the youngest contestant ever to win the title, headed to Miss Teen USA’s Official Facebook to reveal the top 5 most important things she’s learned over the year and to reminisce a bit about saying goodbye to the job.
“?#?throwback? to my first day on the job! I woke up that morning feeling so many emotions… overwhelmed, nervous, scared, and even more excited! I packed my bags the night I won and headed straight to New York to start my media tour!” Katherine wrote. “This year has been the craziest, busiest, and best year of my life. I am definitely going to miss the job of being Miss Teen USA but I cannot wait to see who gets to live this dream next!”
The 2016 Miss Teen USA competition will take place on Sunday, July 31st at the Venetian Resort Hotel Casino in Las Vegas.
