Maurah is a professional model, entrepreneur, and the current Miss Global USA. She has worked as a professional runway model for Austin Fashion Week, Fort Lauderdale Fashion Week, New York Fashion Week, St. Petersburg Fashion Week, and Milan Fashion Week.

Maurah has graced the stage of various pageant systems and is skilled at public speaking and writing. 

She is the founder of two companies — Skinny Lily, popped water lily seeds, a healthy alternative to popcorn, and Acv Gummi, the world's first keto apple cider vinegar gummy. She is passionate about health and fitness and focuses on always keeping a healthy body, mind, and spirit and uses that motto behind both of her companies. Maurah is also passionate about serving her community and is an ambassador for The Little Lighthouse Foundation. This organization serves underserved youth in South Florida. She has also been involved with Ronald McDonald House Charities, Boys and Girls Club, Southside Community Center, Adopt A Highway, and Women's Emergency Shelters. She is also an alumnus of Do the Write Thing, a national campaign to end youth violence where she has published work at the Library of Congress.


Reading. I always try to read at least one book off of Bill Gate's "Best of the Year" list. I also enjoy working on my businesses. 

Why did you get involved in pageantry?

Initially, it was just to try something new and expand my comfort zone. But then I realized I wanted to make a difference in my community. I actually won Miss Texas America's "Miracle Maker Award," which goes to the contestant that raises the most money for Children's Miracle Network hospitals. I also love modeling and felt this was a nice mix of both.
