Emelina Adams, 24, was born and raised in Nevada. Her love of travel began in childhood, and she has visited more than 13 countries. In high school, Emmy (as her friends call her) was a member of the National Honor Society. She later graduated from the University of Arizona, earning a Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology with a Pre-law minor. In college, she had the opportunity to study abroad. That allowed her to hone her Italian (which she speaks fluently) and fueled her love of cooking and trying new foods. As Miss Nevada USA, Emelina is helping young people deal with addiction in their families by speaking about substance abuse in schools. She hopes to show others, through her experience, that with independence and strength, anything is possible. Emelina also enjoys acting and modeling. She has appeared in campaigns for Jovani and walked in fashion week for numerous designers. She plans to return to school to earn her PhD in Psychology and ultimately become a child psychologist.
