Miss America talks about coming home to Michiana

Posted:

Miss America Nina Davuluri, who grew up St. Joe Michigan, is back in Michiana.  "I never thought I would come back as Miss America," she says.  "It's been very surreal." 

We caught up with Davuluri Monday as she took a tour of St. Joe Regional Medical Center in Mishawaka.  "Just coming back to this area, this is truly where my home is," she says.  "I have such close connections and ties to this community so it's really, really special."   

Davuluri is a University of Michigan Graduate.  She studied Brain Behavior and Cognitive Science.  She tells us she is now in the process of applying for Medical School. 

She spent part of her day Monday talking with girls about the importance of education, particularly in the areas of science, technology, engineering and mathematics.  "That's one of my causes and missions during this year of service," she says.  

The future doctor says she hopes to inspire young girls to become well-rounded.  "That's what will ultimately lead to success," she says.
