Newly-crowned Miss America celebrates pageant’s diversity

Posted: Updated:

The new Miss America says she's delighted the pageant embraces diversity.  Sunday night, Nina Davuluri became the first contestant of Indian heritage and the second consecutive contestant from New York to win the Miss America pageant.

The 24-yr.-old won the title as the nationally televised pageant returned home to Atlantic City.  Davuluri performed a classical Bollywood fusion dance for her talent competition. 

The Syracuse native who wants to become a doctor said she's glad children watching the pageant can “finally relate to a new miss America."
