Noelia Voigt wants to tell her side of the story.

The former Miss USA 2023 — who resigned from her title earlier this month, citing her mental health — is asking that her non-disclosure agreement be waived in the wake of new comments from the Miss USA organization.

“I am constrained by a non-disclosure agreement (NDA) and would like to emphatically assert that, following the unauthorized circulation of my resignation letter, [Miss USA President and CEO] Laylah Roses' assertions in her recent statement that contradict my experience after three weeks of unanswered resignation notification are unequivocally inaccurate,” Voigt, 24, wrote on Instagram on May 30.

“I strongly encourage her to waive our NDA to enable me to speak," she added.

Voigt’s request came hours after an “open letter” was released regarding the wave of resignations.

“We are very disappointed to hear the recent false allegations made by individuals speaking on behalf of our former titleholder,” read the letter, which was published over two weeks after Voigt's mom, along with the mom of former Miss Teen USA 2023 UmaSofia Srivastava, claimed their daughters had been "abused, bullied and cornered."

“We cannot and will not address every falsehood, but I will address a few here. The allegations of sexual harassment, toxic environment and bullying are not true," read the statement. "To be clear, such behavior is not accepted, and we can assure you that if such behavior ever occurred, we would take immediate steps to protect our titleholder and provide access to appropriate resources."

Neither Voigt nor the Miss USA organization immediately responded to PEOPLE's request for additional comment.

Voigt announced her resignation on May 6 in a post on Instagram in which she said she strongly values “the importance of making decisions that feel best for you and your mental health."

"Never compromise your physical and mental well-being. Never compromise your physical and mental well-being," she added. "Our health is our wealth."

Voigt later told PEOPLE that she was “really overwhelmed and grateful for the support” that had been receiving.

“The fact that I've been able to kind of shed a light on that and be someone that people can look up to in that sense — and let people know that if something isn't good for you, it's okay to step away from it,” she said. I'm grateful to be that beacon of light for people.”

In the open letter, Rose said the organization is "absolutely committed to upholding the values and spirit of the Miss USA brand every day."

"On behalf of the Miss USA organization, I am also collaborating closely with the National Association for Mental Illness (NAMI) to provide all of our contestants with access to local resources for counseling and various forms of support," she added. "The Miss USA National Pageant will continue to embrace the future for the benefit of all women."

Miss USA 2024 is set to be crowned in August.
