Miranda Moore, Miss Pennsylvania 2023, Miss America Organization

Miranda Moore, age 25, was crowned Miss Pennsylvania 2023 at the historic Appell Center for the Performing Arts in York, PA.  Miranda is an Environmental Engineer and Graduate Student at the University of Pennsylvania, Executive Certificate in Social Impact Strategy. She hopes to obtain a Master’s Degree in Nonprofit Leadership from the University of Pennsylvania and become a Professionally Licensed Engineer (PE).

Through Take Action in Fashion, her community service initiative, she combines her technical sustainability background with partnerships with influential brands and innovative nonprofits, to both raise awareness of and provide solutions for the increasing consequences the fashion industry has on our people, our planet, and our health. Through this initiative, her goals are to change the way we:
● Buy – Encouraging secondhand shopping and sustainably made products
● Wear – Promoting outfit repeating, rental services, and capsule wardrobes
● Think – Teaching people about purchasing power and enacting change with our dollars

These three simple steps make Take Action in Fashion relatable and relevant. They address the entire lifecycle of garments, and resultantly provide various sustainable solutions. This intentional framework starts conversations that inspire people to make a difference, and empowers them with the tools needed to make attainable change.

As Miss Pennsylvania, she travels the state as our state representative for the Miss America Organization, sharing her community service initiative and supporting a variety of community events and organizations throughout her year of service.
