We have a new Miss USA!

 

Miss Nebraska, Sarah Rose Summers, took the crown Monday night at the Hirsch Memorial Coliseum in Shreveport-Bossier Louisiana. She competed against 50 other women and stunned the judges with her thoughtful responses to questions about American life. 

 

One question that stood out was about kids growing up in single-parent households. The question asked was: How has that affected our generation's views on marriage and family? 

 

Miss Nebraska answered, "I am so grateful to have grown up in a home with two parents. And so I can't personally relate to this, however, I do work in children's hospital as a certified child life specialist where I'm a liaison between the children and families and the medical team and I've seen single mothers at the bedside working remotely on their computers to stay by their children and support them, and I think that it just shows that childrenno matter if it's a boy or a girlthat they can do that."

Listen to their views also. That is one thing in the United States that we really need to focus on is listening to each other!

Her personality was on display from the very first moment. Each competition starts with a Q&A with members of the selection committee, next they compete with a swimsuit and evening gown competition. This years selection committee was made up of female entrepreneurs, business leaders, and industry experts.

 

Her final scenario involved a protest; they asked her to imagine herself on the way to a march where someone hands her a blank sign and marker. They questioned what she would put on the sign. 

 

"I say speak your voice. I don't know what march we're on our way to in this hypothetical situation, but no matter where you're going, whatever type of march it is, you're obviously on your way to that march because you care about that cause, so, go speak to people," Summers said. "When they have questions, communicate with them. Listen to their views also. That is one thing in the United States that we really need to focus on is listening to each other!"
