Miss Next Century 2023 - Morgan Romano

Morgan Romano is an American chemical engineer. Romano was first runner up in the 2022 Miss USA pageant and assumed the title of Miss USA 2022 when R'Bonney Gabriel won the Miss Universe pageant. She holds a Bachelor of Science in Engineering (BSE) from the University of South Carolina in 2020 with a focus in chemical engineering.

Romano has used her platform as Miss USA to promote STEM subjects (science, technology, engineering, and math) and STEAM subjects (STEM + Art), particularly with young women. Her interest in STEM began during her teenage years when she was also very involved with dance competitions and explored design interests such as fashion.

Romano continues to advocate and serve as a role model for STEM and STEAM by sharing her passion for engineering and fashion, demonstrating that scientists are diverse in their interests and experiences. She works with organizations and projects such as Best Buddies International, Project Scientist, and STEM Girls Change the World to inspire new generations of women to explore STEM careers. She has also partnered with Faron Medhi, Miss Teen USA 2022, to support Smile Train, the world's larges cleft-focused nonprofit.

Morgan Romano was named Future-ish's 13th Miss Next Century in 2023.
