Miss New York, Nina Davuluri!!! AMURICA, F*CK YEAH!

Without further ado, here are the 5 essential things you need to know about madam USA, who is the first winner of Indian descenet:

1. She wants to be a doctor! Nina is using the $50,000 scholarship to go to med school, just like her father! Well, not that her father won the Miss America competition scholarship. That'd be inneresting though…

2. Her favorite place to travel is Egypt! Sure, it's little turbulent over there right now, but who doesn't like walking like an Egyptian?

3. She bangra, she bangra! Oh how she bangra! Nina performed an AH-mazing Bollywood dance that brought down the house in the talent competition!

4. She likes making Wiener jokes, the political and not the anatomical kind, which made her intro pretty, and topically, HIGHlarious:

“Be careful of the pictures you tweet in my state! Here to win the race I’m Nina Davuluri, Miss New York!”

5. She's making her first official service commitment to Seaside Heights, New Jersey, an area of the Jersey Shore hit hard by Hurricane Sandy.

Congrats, Miss New York on your hard earned win! Represent, yo!

miss america crowns first indian american winner responds to racist tweets

Last night, Nina Davuluri was crowned Miss America and was the first winner of Indian-American decent!

Moments after Nina was awarded, tons of angry viewers took to Twitter to air their frustration, and they all had one belief in common: Miss America should have to be from America.

But here's the thing, Nina Davuluri is from America. Born in Syracuse, she is the the second Miss New York to take home the crown in the last two years. However, people seemed too preoccupied on the color of her skin to pay attention to the facts.

Being the class act she is, Miss America responded to the criticism and proved just why she's so deserving of her title:
