The Miss Maine 2013 Pageant was held this past Sunday at the Samoset Resort in Rockport.

Ali is a 2011 University of Maine/Orono graduate.  She competed in the Miss Maine USA pageant last year and placed 3rd runner up. She values her education and her healthy lifestyle, both of which she plans to promote heavily during her run as Miss Maine!

Ali says, "I love fashion, fitness and leading a healthy lifestyle. Nothing is more exciting than trying a new recipe with a healthy alternative to sugar or butter! Volunteering is also tremendously important to me".

We are proud to have Ali representing our great state, and think to ourselves, "she sure is purr-ty"!
