Ivy League graduate and national dance champion Cara Mund from North Dakota won the Miss America pageant on Sunday, becoming the first contestant from the state to ever win the 91-year-old pageant. After winning Miss North Dakota's Outstanding Teen in 2010, she competed in Miss America's Outstanding Teen in 2011. "I felt like I was dreaming".
The more times Schoeffel advanced, the better she performed.
Mund has raised over $78,500 dollars for the Make-a-Wish foundation since she was 14-years-old. "I don't think I would take it".
After that, however, came the toughest part of the competition.
The 51 women were judged in categories including talent, evening wear, lifestyle and fitness (the swimsuit portion of the competition) and their answer to an onstage question.
Not just this, she looks further to Emma Watson for her active steps in women's right in the United Nation and her industriousness.
I understand that there's a concerted effort to make a beauty pageant look less superficial, but it seems rather unfair to ask someone a question that literally nobody knows a definite answer to (Russian collusion) versus.banning football. She smiled and answered the first question by saying she would like to date a doctor over an athlete or an actor because she thinks intelligence is attractive in men. "So they should be moved to museums". "Despite the circumstances, she's always told me, you can't control the cards you're dealt, but you can control the hand".
That doesn't count the people around North Dakota, and around the country, who were watching the broadcast pageant and cheering from home.
The victor of last night's pageant was Miss North Dakota Cara Hund, and Miss Alabama Jessica Procter made the Top 7.
McDougall said there was a surge three years ago when North Dakota's Jacky Arness was named Judge's Choice at Miss America.
