She also won the optional Spokesmodel, Commercial Actress, Photogenic, and Top Model competitions during the national pageant. She is the daughter of Kevin and Jane Murphy of Springboro, Ohio.
Aidan maintains a 3.6 GPA in her Masters of Business Administration Program at Pepperdine University while completing a graduate certification in Organizational Behavior from Harvard University (Class of 2021). She is on the Executive Committee of Delta Sigma Pi Business Fraternity and is an active member of Pepperdine Women in Business and Artificial Intelligence (A.I.) Club organizations.

As Ms. of California, Aidan created her foundation #Believe2Read which promotes adult literacy and provides a safe learning environment for adults learning to read while spreading awareness that 1 in 4 adults struggle with literacy skills in America. She has completed over 360 hours of community service with organizations such as the American Heart Association, Together We Rise, Girl Scouts of America, and many more.
