Government scientist from DC wins Miss USA title

Asked whether she sees affordable healthcare for all Americans as a right or a privilege, McCullough answered, "I'm definitely going to say it's a privilege". "We need to continue to cultivate this environment that we're given the opportunity to have health care as well as jobs". In addition to believe that healthcare should only be for those that can afford it, McCullough believes that there's a problem with the word "feminism", preferring the term "equalism". Still, there is some work to be done in what regards equality between men and women.

She follows the reign of Deshauna Barber, the former Miss USA who also hailed from D.C.

When Miss District of Columbia Kára McCullough was crowned Miss USA 2017 on Sunday night, she made history.

Many viewers on Twitter, however, believed that McCullough's answer was not great.

The topic of healthcare also came up during the competition. Her family immigrated from India when she was 4 years old.

Miss McCullough will go on to represent US at the annual Miss Universe pageant later in the year. Given their meltdown on Twitter, it looks like she must have done something right! She is the second consecutive D.C. contestant to take the Miss America title.

The leak also suggests that, like its predecessors, the phone will have a 6 GB RAM capacity and not the 8 GB rumoured earlier. The Verge says that " OnePlus has exclusively confirmed [.] that its next flagship smartphone will arrive this summer".

The newly crowned Miss USA on Tuesday sought to explain that she thinks she is "privileged" to have healthcare, but that it should be a right. She called affordable health care a "privilege" for USA citizens, not a right.

Miss Minnesota Meridith Gould is studying apparel retail merchandising at the University of Minnesota, while Miss District of Columbia is a chemist working for the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission.

Kara's reply: "I don't want to call myself a feminist".

"I'm extremely thankful for this opportunity", McCullough said after the event.

Verg was one of five women who participated in the pageant who told The Associated Press they immigrated to the US with their families at a young age.

Barber, an Army Reserve officer and IT analyst, said at the time: "As a woman in the United States Army, I think it was an wonderful job by our government to allow women to integrate into every branch of the military".
