7 Things to Know About the New Miss America, Kira Kazantsev

expand

Ask and ye shall receive: On Friday, I said I'd be tuning in to the 2015 Miss America Pageant in hopes of catching some new talent performances—and I was rewarded with a ventriloquist rendition of"Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious".

While Miss Ohio received mega-points for originality, she was bested for the crown by Miss New York, 23-year-old Kira Kazantsev. Here's what we know about the latest beauty queen supreme.

Miss America

1. She's the third Miss New York in a row to be crowned Miss America. It is the first time in the pageant's 94-year history that a state has won three times in a row, which Kazantsev attributes to the "make it here, make it anywhere" attitude. "The thing about New York, especially being Miss New York, is that you have to make it," she told New Jersey Advance Media.

2. But she's not a native New Yorker. Kazantsev's parents are Russian immigrants and she was raised in California, but moved to the Empire State five years ago to attend college at Hofstra University (where she triple-majored in political science, global studies, and geography).

3. Once her reign as Miss America is over, Kazantsev (who speaks fluent Russian) plans to attend the University of Notre Dame for law school. Her goal is to pursue a career advocating for women's issues and international diplomacy.

4. She's passionate about raising awareness for domestic violence. Kazantsev, who was in an abusive relationship during college, wants the conversation to move away from asking "why doesn't she just leave?" "There are so many extenuating circumstances that lead to a woman staying with her abuser," she told NPR.

5. She's inspired by Anna Kendrick. For her talent, Kazantsev channeled Kendrick in Pitch Perfect when she sang Pharrell's "Happy" while sitting on the floor and tapping the beat with a red solo cup.

6. In random news, she loves street hot dogs... I can't decide if I'm grossed out or impressed.

Miss America

7. ...and Jane Austen. (We assume she meant Austen, seeing as I don't know who Jane Austin is.)

Miss America

Congratulations to Kira! What did you think of her "Happy" performance?
