Miss Nevada USA 2018
Carolina Urrea is of Colombian, Mexican, and American heritage. She has a passion for travel and hiking, and she enjoys volunteering with the Las Vegas ICO (Inspiring Connections Outdoors), an outreach program that provides nature outings and wilderness experiences to underserved urban youth in the Las Vegas area.Carolina volunteers in an effort to help young people forge a meaningful bond with nature so that they will appreciate its beauty and understand the need for its protection. She is also an advocate of the Nevada partnership for Homeless Youth (NPHY). This organization is especially close to her heart because she experienced homelessness firsthand. Thanks to the help and generosity of others, Carolina was able to work toward a better life and today feels as though she is living proof that the American dream is possible to achieve, regardless of your socioeconomic status. She uses that message and her own personal experience to inspire others who are facing homelessness (especially children) that no matter what today looks like, tomorrow can be better and brighter. Carolina currently works as a model, having shot for national brands such as Forever 21, Nordstroms, Target, CVS, Sephora, Ulta Beauty, and Lanc™me among others. In her free time she enjoys raising her three rescue animals and reading motivational books. Carolina also aspires to someday work as an ambassador of a global organization.
