Cara Mund, Miss North Dakota, obtained the Miss America pageant 2018 on Sunday night. It is the most surprising thing ever as the state has claimed the prize at the first time in 100-year’s history.
23-year-old Cara Mund completed her graduation from the Brown University. Her dream is to be the first female governor of North Dakota. She reminded the audience about Dakota’s lack of pageant successes.
Before the preliminary competition, Mund said she wants to become the first elected woman governor of her state. She said, focusing on the importance of women in government jobs, “It’s important to have a woman’s perspective.” “In health care and on reproductive rights, it’s predominantly men making those decisions.”
During the question-and-answer portion, Miss America candidates were asked different questions about the current political affairs and President Trump and therefore the event became political. Among 51 contestants, Cara Mund topped and the event was held at the New Jersey seaside resort, where around 97 Miss Americas have been selected.
She said, “I do believe it’s a bad decision,” Once we reject that, we take ourselves out of the negotiation table and that’s something that we really need to keep in mind.”
Mund is now the receiver of a $50,000 scholarship and a six figure salary during her Miss America reign.
In the preparatory competition, Mund was a finalist for a community service award, at Atlantic City. She impressed the judges in the talent competition by performing a jazz routine.
After the Q-&-A portion, she was crowned the winner, beating the runner-up, Miss Missouri, Jennifer Davis; Second runner-up, Miss New Jersey, Kaitlyn Schoeffel; third runner-up, Miss D.C., Briana Kinsey; and fourth runner-up, Miss Texas, Margana Wood.
