Teen Wisconsin Havah Fleisner_edited.jpg

I'm Havah Fleisner, honored to be your United States of America’s Teen 2024. At 16 years old, I'm currently a junior in High School.


Diagnosed with Stargardt's Macular Degeneration at the age of 9, alongside my brother and sister, I face the challenges of this genetic eye condition that causes progressive vision loss.


My platform, "Through Her Eyes: Living Life Legally Blind," focuses on raising awareness and inspiring others living with visual impairments.


I hope my story can inspire others to believe in themselves and never give up, no matter what obstacles they face. Competing in pageants as a 16 year old who cannot get her drivers license, this win is my drivers license. If I can do it, anyone can! Competing in pageantry for the first time and winning my State title was a tremendous achievement, and this title marks my second time competing. The USOA pageant's motto is to empower, inspire, and uplift, and I hope to reflect these values throughout my journey.
