This week I had the opportunity to meet Miss Minnesota USA 2022, Madeline Helget from Clearwater. Madeline was crowned back in May and will be the reigning Miss until next spring when the next pageant takes place.

Growing up with two brothers, Madeline's mom got her into pageants to try something "girly" in 8th grade, and she found that she had a knack for it. Even though she loves a good evening gown, there's more to Madeline than smiles and rhinestones. She is a registered Diagnostic Medical Sonographer working in St. Cloud, and a graduate of St. Cloud Technical College.

Working in the medical field, Madeline realized there is a need for more mental health support for cancer patients, so she created The Bersheid Foundation at age 24 to help meet that need.

We got to chat with our Miss Minnesota 2022 when she stopped by the studio, get to know her better for yourself in the interview below. And after that make sure you watch her sweet crowing moment video from this past May.
