Miss North Dakota Crowned Miss America | 5 Interesting Facts About Cara Mund

On Sunday, Cara Mund, a 23-year-old graduate from Brown University, was crowned the newest Miss America, making her the first contestant from North Dakota to win the title. She is the official hostess for the State of Louisiana and spokesperson for Children's Miracle Network Hospitals, Vantage Health Plan, Propane Dealers of Louisiana and the Louisiana Governor's Council on Physical Fitness and Sports. On the road to Miss America, Briana had to overcome bullying from her peers.

Meanwhile, Miss North Dakota Cara Mund-the pageant's winner-said Trump was wrong to withdraw the USA from the Paris climate agreement, which deals with mitigating greenhouse gas emissions.

"It's important to have a woman's perspective", Mund, who had an internship in the U.S. Senate, told the AP. She added that only three girls from her state made it to that stage of the pageant.

She said she doesn't think enough information has been revealed to support such a charge.
