Aisha Berry is a beauty queen from Cincinnati, Ohio who has competed in the Miss USA pageant.

Berry won the Miss Ohio USA 2005 title in a state pageant held in late 2004. This was her fifth attempt at the title, as she placed second runner-up in 2001, was a semi-finalist in the 2002 pageant won by Kim Mullen, did not place in the 2003 event won by Candace Smith, and was fourth runner-up in 2004. Other runners-up in the 2004 competition were Shannon Niquette Stewart, first runner-up, who had previously competed on America's Next Top Model, and Stacy Offenberger, who would succeed Berry as Miss Ohio USA. Although they have similar names and are both African-American, Berry is not related to actress Halle Berry who held the Miss Ohio USA title in 1986.

Berry represented Ohio in the Miss USA 2005 pageant broadcast live from Baltimore, Maryland in April 2005. She was attempting to become the first delegate from Ohio to place since 1999, however Berry failed to make the first cut (of fifteen contestants). The pageant was won by Chelsea Cooley of North Carolina.

Three months after competing at Miss USA, Berry passed on her crown to Stacy Offenberger of Vincent, having reigned for only eight months, as the 2006 event was brought forward to July 2005.[1]

Berry is a graduate of Western Hills High School and completed a degree in business management from the University of Cincinnati in August 2005.[1]
