Hawaii native Savannah Gankiewicz crowned Miss USA after previous winner resigned

Savannah Gankiewicz of Hawaii was crowned Miss USA 2023 on Wednesday, more than a week after the former titleholder resigned due to mental health.

Gankiewicz, a model who runs a women’s empowerment nonprofit, will hold the title until August — the remainder of the president’s term, the Honolulu Star-Advertiser reported.

“I’m ready to make a positive impact with this organization that I care about,” Gankiewicz, of Maui, said during a ceremony at the Alohilani Resort Waikiki Beach.

As first runner-up, Gankiewicz was announced to replace former Miss USA 2023 Noelia Voigt, who resigned on May 6. In a statement, Voigt thanked his fans and wrote: “Never compromise your physical and mental well-being.”

Voigt, a former Miss Utah, was crowned in September 2023.

Miss Teen USA, UmaSofia Srivastava, also resigned her title days after Voigt’s resignation, a shock to the Miss Universe Organization, which organizes both pageants.

Srivastava, the former Miss New Jersey Teen USA, wrote in a statement that her personal values ​​no longer fully align with the direction of the organization.”
