GILBERT, Ariz. -

A Grand Canyon University junior was crowned Miss Arizona Saturday night at Mesquite High School in Gilbert.

Miss Arizona 2013 is Jennifer Smestad, a communications major who competed as Miss City of Maricopa.

Smestad's platform is "Hope and Support for Children with Neurological Disorders."

Her platform is especially important to her because she lives with Tourette's syndrome.

Smestad was diagnosed at 10-years-old and had to overcome challenges like making friends and learning how to write.

The Miss America pageant takes place September 15 in Atlantic City, New Jersey.
