Some Good News For Nevada
From the Chicago Tribune: Nia Sanchez, 24-year-old 4th degree black belt in Tae Kwon Do from Nevada, was crowned Miss USA on Sunday during the 63rd telecast of the annual beauty pageant.
Sanchez, who wore an intricate red gown during the latter part of the three-hour nationally broadcast contest, addressed the issue of sexual assault on college campuses during a question-and-answer session faced by all six finalists.
Sanchez said she felt some colleges, fearing a bad reputation, might sweep the problem under the rug, and that "More awareness (of the issue) is very important so that women can learn to protect themselves."
She added that as a 4th degree black belt, she learned "you need to be confident and be able to defend yourself ... That's something we need to start to implement for a lot of women."
On a day of saddness here in Nevada, it's nice to see a young woman outshined a bunch of other young women to win Miss USA.
And there is no way any guy will mess with her.
