Ayanna Hensley
Miss Kansas 2022

On June 11, 2022, ayanna Hensley of Dodge City, Kansas, a 2022 graduate of Fort Hays State University majoring in Biology with a minor in English, was crowned Miss Kansas 2022. This involvement and accomplishment resulted in Ayanna being awarded nearly $15,000 in cash scholarships through the Miss Kansas competitions to apply toward her education.

As Miss Kansas, Ayanna will make over 400 appearances during her year-of-service, many of them motivational presentation to students in Kansas schools.  Ayanna's social impact initiative is ACEs Low: Overcoming Adverse Childhood Experiences. Her focus for this initiative is to help promote an ideology centered on assisting youth 'digest' and overcome their adversity.  Most traumatic situations a child faces will correlate to lifelong problems.  As an individual directly affected by severe trauma, Ayanna knows what a child needs to overcome their realities and break their generational cycles.

Throughout her year-of-service, Ayanna will work to connect her social impact initiative with the Miss America and Miss Kansas Organizations.  She will serve as an ambassador, representing the organization across the State of Kansas.
