Obligatory crown sleeping photo. Still can’t believe that this is happening but I am so excited to be your new Miss America! As my first day comes to a close, I am overwhelmed with gratitude and love for all of the people that supported me on this journey and especially for all of the amazing women that I had the privilege to get to know over the past two weeks in Atlantic City. These women epitomize everything that Miss America is all about. To have been chosen from among them is my greatest honor. Looking forward to a wonderful year and I can’t wait to meet everyone along the way! -Kira
