Sophia Dominguez Heithoff is Proud To Be The First Latina Miss Teen USA in 10 Years (Exclusive)

Sophia Dominguez Heithoff was crowned the new Miss Teen USA over the weekend.

You might’ve not known it at the time, but Sophia actually makes history as one of only four former title holders to be of Latina descent and the first in 10 years.

“Most of the responses have been amazing,” Sophia told JJJ in an interview this week about her heritage. “A lot of them have been commenting on my ethnicity and saying ‘We’re so happy you’re Latina’.”

She adds, “I think that goes to show how important diversity is and how needed it is in our society today. Little girls and everyone alike wants to see people and public figures that represent them and who look like them.

“I’m very glad I can be that person for them.”

So are we Sophia!
