Hey there, I’m Paola Cossyleon. I’m your Miss Grand United States 2018.
I was born in Chicago, Illinois on September 6th, 1994 to parents of Mexican Descent. At the age of fifteen, I won my first pageant called Miss Covergirl 2011 and later becoming Miss Teen Illinois Latina in 2013, catapulting my modeling career in TV and Radio.
I am currently studying Communications and International Relations with the hopes of becoming a lawyer.
My passion for charity has given me the opportunity to be an ambassador and volunteer at various non-profit organizations. With the organization Gift of Hope, I was able to raise awareness on organ donation and funds to build and support the Children’s Rehabilitation Institute of Teleton USA which provides assistance to children with neurological and musculoskeletal disorders.
She's the kind of queen that knows her crown isn't on her head but in her soul.
- Adrian Micheal
Currently, I'm a board member at FEDEJAL a non-profit organization with a dual vision of helping those who reside in their municipalities of origin and aid in the integration for those that arrive at the United States.
When I'm not busy running my own restaurant, I enjoy giving back to my community as a runway coach to the young girls in local pageants.
