Less than eight months after being crowned Miss Teen USA 2023, UmaSofia Srivastava is now stepping down from her title. This comes just two days after Miss USA 2023, Noelia Voigt, announced her own resignation as well.


On Wednesday, May 8th, the New Jersey-based teenager made her decision public on Instagram, stating that her “personal values no longer fully align with the direction of the organization.”

“After months of grappling with this decision, I have made the choice to resign from the title of Miss Teen USA 2023,” she wrote. “I am grateful for all the support from my family, my state directors, my sister queens, and the fans who have cheered me on since I won my state title. I will always look back on my time as Miss NJ Teen USA fondly, and the experience of representing my state as a first-generation, Mexican-Indian American at the national level was fulfilling in itself.”

“Ultimately, working with these incredible non-profits and seeing the first-hand impact that The White Jaguar has had on the kids and adults I’ve read it to is what has forged my legacy,” she continued. “This work has always been my TRUE purpose.”

Soon after, the Miss Teen USA organization wished the junior high school student well on Instagram shortly after seeing Srivastava’s post, and they indicated that the next title-holder would be revealed shortly.

“UmaSofia, we are wishing you all the best.❤️ Thank you for your service as Miss Teen USA. 👑 ,” the organization posted. “We respect and support UmaSofia’s decision to step down from her duties. The well-being of our titleholders is a top priority. We are currently reviewing plans for the transition of responsibilities to a successor, and we will soon announce the crowning of the new Miss Teen USA.”

Srivastava tendered her resignation just days after Voigt also declared her intention to step down from her title.
