Brains and Beauty

It’s not often that you find someone who has top titles in academics, music, running, and the Miss Minnesota pageant. With both beauty and brains, Rebecca Yeh is the real deal. An accomplished scholar and violinist, the Nisswa native recently won the Miss Minnesota pageant in June and is currently in Atlantic City to compete in the 2014 Miss America pageant.

Ambitious from a young age, Yeh uses her musical talent to teach others how to play the violin—a passion she has pursued since she was 13. Having recently completed her sophomore year at Ohio Northern University, Yeh is pursuing a career as a clinical pharmacist and was accepted into the highly selective Doctorate of Pharmacy program. To top it off, she is a Triple ‘A’ scholarship recipient (academics, arts and athletics) and has already appeared on the Dean’s List twice.

Cheer her on this week as she competes in the Miss America pageant! Follow Minnesota Monthly’s Facebook page for the latest updates.
