Taken from Blair's bio from the Miss Colorado USA website:
"After trying for three years, family and friends got to see Blair Griffith crowned Miss Colorado USA 2011 on her fourth attempt for the title. It has been a dream and goal of Blair’s to win the title since she grew up watching the Miss USA pageant on television with her dad.
Blair is a Magna Cum Laude graduate from The Art Institute of Colorado where she received her Bachelors Degree in Fashion Retail Management. Her focus allowed Blair to excel scholastically as she maintained a 3.8 GPA and was accepted into the Alpha Beta Kappa National Honor Society."
Blair has come into the spotlight more notably because of her homeless situation. Regardless, she is still battling for the title of Miss USA 2011 on June 19th, 2011 on NBC. Check out her interview below as she explains more about events that left her homeless, more insight about the state of homelessness today, but more importantly her competitive drive to capture the Miss USA crown.
