Miss Virginia Caressa Cameron wins Miss America

1 Feb

Congratulations to Miss Virginia Caressa Cameron for winning the Miss America title last night in Las Vegas.  She becomes one of the few African American women to win the prestigious title.  Caressa represented my home state of Virginia with pride.

Caressa is a senior at my alma mater, Virginia Commonwealth University.  She is also in the same school, the School of Mass Communications, studying broadcast journalism.  Her performance of “Listen” from the musical Dreamgirls, gave me chills.  She deserves this crown and I’m rooting for her to make a positive impact for women, especially African American girls.
