Miss USA Nia Sanchez used to be a Disney Princess 2


The newly crowned Miss USA Nia Sanchez has a little bit of Disney Magic in her past.  Before gowns and crowns, Nia was a Disney Princess at Hong Kong Disneyland, including but not limited to Cinderella, Princess Aurora, Belle, and Snow White.

Nia eventually left Disney to focus on pageants full time.  “Sometimes you don’t appreciate something as much as you should until it’s gone. Being a part of these moments was the best.”

Nia still visits Disney often, posting photos to her more than 26,000 Instagram followers.

She is also a former Disney Princess you would not want to mess with, as she currently holds a a fourth-degree black belt in Taekwondo.
