Meet Chloe Zambrano Miss Colorado Teen USA from Fruita Colorado and attends Monument High School. Chloe is just 17 years old but is mature and poignant. In order to win Miss Colorado USA, she competed in three different categories. Interviewing, evening gown and active wear. She said the pageant did away with the swimsuit competition and replaced it with active wear, which the pageant thought was more appropriate. Part of the interview process with the Judges is staying active and up to date with current events. Chloe says the judges just want to know who they really are.

She said when she was a little girl she would watch the Miss USA and Miss Universe pageants on TV and more than anything she imagined herself walking the stage. She says to win Miss Colorado Teen USA is a dream come true. She also credits her mother for being supportive and says her mom is her best friend.

Chloe will be attending college and wants to become an ABA therapist, which is Applied Behavioral Analysis. Chloe says, "She loves working with kids with disabilities and it's something she's been very passionate about for a very long time and it's something she wants to continue in her future." She then hopes to compete in the Miss Colorado USA Pageant and hopefully walk the Miss USA stage.

I asked her if she had any hidden talents like the tablecloth trick in "Miss Congeniality" and she jokingly said she was not that talented she did, however, say she could dance. One important question was who your favorite country artists are; she replied Kane Brown and Dierks Bentley. We will be seeing Chloe Zambrano at Country Jam.
