Mee-Ladie Delgado was crowned Ms. United States in Las Vegas, Nevada in August 2016. She is very active in serving her local community as well as throughout the states. Her passion for serving others began with “The Joy of Yes” at Camp Boggy Creek. A camp where children with serious illnesses and their families can forget the word “no” for a little while and embrace the promise of “yes”. A place of dreams, of joy, and of possibilities. She will continue to advocate for this organization in hopes to bring awareness and funds towards the cause. Her love for helping others is no secret to anyone. She has graduated with a bachelor’s degree in Criminology from Florida Atlantic University, in order to assist with reintegrating juvenile delinquents into society.
Traveling has always been a great part of Mee-Ladie' life. She has already visited 2 out of the 7 wonders of the world and continues to do so- in the Solar and Automation Datacom field. As an Engineer in training, for a multi-million-dollar company in South Florida, she finds that it is very important to find a balance between career and your passion; so that you may reach your goals and be fulfilled.
One of her passions is being on the runway as a model. She also enjoys working for different designers in the fashion industry and has expanded her experience within that field for over 5 years. She is grateful to continue her journey in this field and is looking forward to make a difference in people’s lives all around the country, but now as Ms. United States.
