There She Is… Miss America From Park Slope!

Mallory Hagan, a 23-year-old Park Slope resident by way of Alabama, was crowned Miss America 2013 on Saturday, January 12. Miss New York attended the Fashion Institute of Technology, and her platform issue is child sexual abuse prevention. Hagan plans to obtain a degree in cosmetics and fragrance marketing, with an eye toward a career in global cosmetics marketing. She was tops with the judges in the swimsuit competition during Saturday’s show, and performed a tap dance to James Brown’s “Get Up Offa That Thing.”

Brooklyn Borough Prez Marty Markowitz comments, “I always say that Brooklyn is proud home to everyone from anywhere, and now that includes a Miss America! I had the honor of meeting Mallory at Brooklyn Borough Hall and have no doubt that she will represent Brooklyn, New York State and all of America with distinction during her reign. On behalf of nearly 2.6 million fellow Brooklynites, I say bravo to Mallory—and we can’t wait to welcome her home and ‘crown’ her Kings County style!”
