Brooklynite, Kinda, Wins Miss America 2013

A 23 year-old from Park Slope, Brooklyn via Alabama is the new Miss America 2013.

Mallory Hagan, the former Miss New York, is a student at Fashion Institute of Technology. She moved to Brooklyn in 2008.

From the Miss America Pageant:

"Mallory's triumphant walk across the stage was just the beginning of a journey that will take her to every corner of the country during her year of service as Miss America 2013. She will travel approximately 20,000 miles each month speaking to audiences about her platform "Stop it Now-Child Sexual Abuse" and acting as the official National Goodwill Ambassador for Children's Miracle Network Hospitals."

Hagan won a $50,000 scholarship -- which, as Gawker points out, would afford her approximately 5/6ths of one year at NYU.

Hagan is working on a degree in Cosmetics and Fragrance Marketing.
