The contest Franklin represented the state of new York, although born in North Carolina. In home state, she graduated from a magistracy majoring in “composer” and then moved to new York to continue training at the Opera singer. The girl admitted that music helped her find herself. “I grew up in the school where I studied mostly white, and minorities were about five percent, and I was always uncomfortable because of the color of the skin. But later I found my love for art and music, and it helped me to treat myself better and to find their I”, — quotes its words CNN. The first song she wrote at age six.
As a reward for winning she received a scholarship in the amount of 50 thousand dollars. Franklin said that the next year as the winner of the title plans to work to provide all children access to quality education in the arts.
This year for the first time in 97 years the competition from his program removed the catwalk in swimsuits. Franklin said she is pleased with this because “all the participants much more than just look.” Instead, the candidates answered questions from their rivals. Winner of the previous contest Cara Mund (Mund Cara) stated that he opposed such decisions, but the organizers “did not listen to her and made fun of”.
