Miss Oregon Teen USA 2011 Kayla Ann Marie Roush competed in Kooey swimwear during the 2011 Miss Teen USA preliminary competition at Atlantis, Paradise Island Resort in The Bahamas.
Kayla was first runner-up for Miss Oregon Teen USA 2010. She gave it another shot and won in 2011.
A student at Regis Catholic School, Kayla “hopes to share with young women around the State that pageants are a wonderful opportunity to help young girls to become more confident, assertive and poised not to mention the wonderful new friendships you develop along the way,” according to her official biography.
“She wants other young girls to know that it’s ok to step out of the box and out of your comfort zone. That with enough determination, passion, and confidence in themselves, they can achieve anything they dream of. Kayla is proud and honored to be an example and role-model for young girls everywhere that anything is possible if you have faith and believe. Growing up in a loving environment Kayla has learned the importance of family, friends and God.”
