Mallory Hagan, Miss America 2013, has an impressive history of winning pageants. Originally from Alabama, Mallory moved to Brooklyn, New York in 2008 with $1000 in her pocket and a dream to win beauty pageants. And that she did. After winning pageants in her native Alabama, she won Miss Brooklyn 2010, Miss Manhattan 2011 and Miss New York City 2012, before winning the ultimate pageant- Miss America 2013.
