Nina Davuluri, age 24, is the First Miss America of Indian descent!
“I’m so happy this organization has embraced diversity,” she said in her first press conference after winning the crown in Atlantic City, New Jersey’s Boardwalk Hall. “I’m thankful there are children watching at home who can finally relate to a new Miss America.”
Nina is from New York and plans on attending medical school and becoming a doctor. However her first official act will be to visit Seaside Heights, NJ- the location damaged by Hurricane Sandy and then by a fire last week.
Can’t wait to see all of the things she does this year and what is to come next year after yet another milestone has been broken in this country.
Check out the priceless reaction photos below from the pageant.
