When SIMONE ESTERS walked out on stage, she graciously hoped she’d be bestowed the crown, but never dreamed she would be Miss Missouri two years in a row! Due to the pandemic, the Miss America Organization announced that the Miss America 2021 Competition would be postponed a year, so Esters is performing her reign a historic second year as Miss Missouri. Her incredible adaptive skills, health conscious goals and fitness awareness has carried her through what was the most difficult environment in our time. In addition, by Simone’s side as support, were her dearly loved furry family — a dog, Koba, and a cat, Lulu.
