Miss Michigan Calls Out Flint Water Crisis At Miss America Pageant

“Miss Michigan should automatically win #MissAmerica for starting with this! #Home #GoGirl,” posted @JSchipperWDRB.
“Emily Sioma, @MissAmericaMI wanted to make an impact. Regardless of whether you agree with what she said or not, she is shining light on a pressing issue that we have in our state that and that is STILL not solved. THAT, is a Miss America,” tweeted @brooklynn_kayy
Miss America underwent a series of changes in the last year intended to transform it from a beauty pageant to a platform for empowering young women. Notably, the swimsuit competition was dropped from the event.
According to Sioma’s biography on the Miss America website, she is from Grass Lake, Michigan and has a degree in Women’s Studies from the University of Michigan.
    “Miss America empowered me to: be proud, confident, and unapologetically myself,” Sioma is quoted as saying on the website.
    Miss New York, Nia Franklin, was crowned the 92nd Miss America.
