It’s hard to take your eyes off of her. The reigning Miss Colorado USA Blair Griffith is an undeniably beautiful young woman. From appearances, it would seem as though she has everything, but there’s one thing the 23-year-old doesn’t have: a home.

‘It was a difficult thing to go through to sit there and go, ‘Where are we going to go now,” Griffith said of the fact that she and her mother, Bonita, were evicted from their home in November of last year.

It was just one month after Blair won the title of 2011 Miss Colorado USA.

A series of life challenges led the Morrison native to her current situation. Now, for the first time, she is ready to share her story.

‘I hope that people will see this and realize, ‘Wow, she is a real person,’ or ‘Hey, I didn’t think there was someone out there going through something similar as me,” Griffith said.

Griffith’s interest in pageants began with a tragedy.

‘When I was in eighth grade, my father became very sick all of a sudden,’ she said.

Her father, Gary Griffith, was the one who had encouraged a then-tomboy Blair to enter beauty pageants. Doctors discovered that Gary Griffith had prostate cancer. He died one year later.
