EDISON, NJ – Emily Shah is representing New Jersey proud at this year’s Miss USA pageant in Baton Rouge, La.
Shah, an Edison resident, appeared in an evening gown and swimsuit during the Miss USA Preliminary Competition at the Baton Rouge River Center on Wednesday, June 4.
The schedule Shah and all her fellow contestants are following is grueling; making appearances, conducting interviews and touring. She tweeted jokingly that she has mastered how to do her hair and makeup half asleep.

The pageant will air live Sunday evening on NBC at 8 p.m.
