She's pretty. Not the biggest fan of Indians either but that shouldnt take away from her moment. If anything the only REAL miss america should be native american, so those white folks can stop talking sh*t b/c their "point" is null and void

On her first day as the new Miss America, Nina Davuluri dipped her toes into the Atlantic City surf.

But hours earlier, she had to dive headfirst into the complex challenges of becoming the first Miss America of Indian heritage.

Moments after winning, Davuluri had her first test as Miss America: The first question she was asked in a news conference was about social media users who were upset that someone of Indian heritage had won.

Making a splash: On her first day as the new Miss America, Nina Davuluri followed pageant tradition by dipping her toes into the Atlantic City surf

Time of her life: The ocean frolic took place Monday morning, in front of Boardwalk Hall, where she won the title hours earlier

'I have to rise above that,' said Davuluri. 'I always viewed myself as first and foremost American.'

She said she is delighted that the nearly century-old pageant sees beauty and talent of all kinds.

'I'm so happy this organization has embraced diversity,' she said. 'I'm thankful there are children watching at home who can finally relate to a new Miss America.'

 


    Davuluri's pageant platform was 'celebrating diversity through cultural competency.' Her talent routine was a Bollywood fusion dance.

    The 24-year-old is the second Asian-American winner, after Angela Perez-Baraquio, who is of Filipino descent, and won in 2001.

    All smiles: 'Welcome home, Miss America!' Davuluri said as she stood barefoot in the shallow surf, wearing a lime green Miss America T-shirt and white shorts. 'We're back in Atlantic City!'

    Home sweet home: The pageant, which originated in Atlantic City 1921, spent the last six years in Las Vegas before returning to New Jersey

    Davuluri, a native of Syracuse, New York, wants to be a doctor and is applying to medical school, with the help of a $50,000 scholarship she won as part of the pageant title.

    She is the second consecutive Miss New York to win the Miss America crown, succeeding Mallory Hagan, who was selected in January.

    Family confidence: Her grandmother said there are numerous doctors in the family, both in the U.S. and India, and that if her granddaughter wants to become one, 'I am sure she will do it'

    'Welcome home, Miss America!' Davuluri said as she stood barefoot in the shallow surf, wearing a lime green Miss America T-shirt and white shorts. 'We're back in Atlantic City!'

    Her grandmother told The Associated Press that she cried when she saw the news on television.

    'I am very, very happy for the girl. It was her dream and it was fulfilled,' 89-year-old Vege Koteshwaramma said by phone from her home in the city of Vijaywada, in the southern Indian state of Andhra Pradesh.

    She said there are numerous doctors in the family, both in the U.S. and India, and that if her granddaughter wants to become one, 'I am sure she will do it.'

    Proudest moment: Her grandmother, 89-year-old Vege Koteshwaramma, also told The Associated Press that she cried when she saw the news on television

    Record-breaking: The 24-year-old is the second Asian-American winner, after Angela Perez-Baraquio, who is of Filipino descent, and won in 2001

    Accepting: Im so happy this organization has embraced diversity, she said of the Miss America pageant. Im thankful there are children watching at home who can finally relate to a new Miss America

    Accepting: 'I'm so happy this organization has embraced diversity,' she said of the Miss America pageant. 'I'm thankful there are children watching at home who can finally relate to a new Miss America'

    Asked about her granddaughter appearing in a bikini, given the conservative attitudes about such things in India, Koteshwaramma said: 'I haven't seen any such thing. This must be all part of the competition.'

    Davuluri had planned to go to the scene of a devastating boardwalk fire in the New Jersey communities of Seaside Park and Seaside Heights on Monday afternoon. 

    But pageant officials canceled that visit after learning that Governor Chris Christie was making cabinet officials available at that same time to business owners victimized by the fire.

    Davuluri will visit at an unscheduled future date, pageant officials said.

    Instead, she was headed to New York City to prepare for a slew of TV talk show appearances, and planned to take in Broadway musicals over the next several days. 

    On Tuesday, she will see Pippin. On Wednesday, she will meet former Miss America (and fellow Syracuse native) Vanessa Williams and see The Trip To Bountiful, a play in which Williams appears.

    Williams was the first black Miss America in 1984, but she resigned after Penthouse magazine published nude photographs of her.
