The new Miss USA 2013 is Erin Brady, Miss Connecticut USA 2013, a graduate of Central Connecticut State University with a degree in Finance and a minor in Criminal Justice. She was crowned by outgoing Miss USA 2012, Nana Meriwether, of Maryland.
Erin Brady, Miss Connecticut USA, is the new Miss USA 2013.
The sleek and toned Brady competed well in the swimsuit competition in an orange bikini with a blue beach skirt. In the evening gown com petition, she wore an elegant strapless white gown with a gold beaded bodice and a fitted skirt with an train.
She was a standout in the evening's final on-stage questions where judges ask the finalists individual questions. Comedian Mo Rocca asked Miss Connecticut, "the Supreme Court ruled that criminal suspects can be subjected to a police DNA test after arrest. Do you agree or disagree with this, and why or why not?”
The eventual winner, Erin Brady, exuded confidence during the final questions segment.
Without hesitating, Brady responded confidently:
“I would agree with this. I think that if someone’s being prosecuted and
has committed a crime that’s that severe, that they should have a DNA test. I
think there are so many crimes going on in this world that, if that’s one step
closer to figuring out who has done it - I think we should absolutely do so.”
Erin was raised in a home heavily influenced by alcohol and substance abuse and she sadly remembers the lack of support and places to turn to for the children of addicts, such as her.
Brady has since learned that more than half of adult addicts are children of alcoholics. It is her goal to help break the cycle of addiction as she plans to be an advocate for children of alcohol and substance abuse.
The new Miss USA is a Financial Accountant for Prudential Retirement in Hartford, CT, where she works behind the scenes by running the controls
that ensure every member of her team has performed their work correctly and efficiently. Erin plans to pursue an MBA in the near future
and hopes to get involved with Pension Risk Transfers.
