Whether you’re a fan of beauty pageants or not, it’s pretty darn cool that this year’s Miss America lives in our neck of the woods. Mallory Hagan, the 23-year-old Alabama native, who tapped her way to victory last night, reportedly lives on 17th Street in Windsor Terrace.
In addition to acting as the National Goodwill Ambassador for the Children’s Miracle Network, Miss America will spend the next year championing her platform, Stop it Now – Child Sexual Abuse. Mallory will also serve as a spokesperson for education, focusing on STEM (Science, Technology, Education and Mathematics) with the Department of Education.
The FIT student will receive a $50,000 scholarship to continue her education, and hopes to someday become a makeup or fragrance executive.
Seriously, though, have you seen her tap number from last night? She totally deserves the title for that alone.
