Miss North Carolina Cheslie Kryst — a full-time attorney — was crowned Miss USA 2019 during the pageant in Reno, Nevada Thursday night.

I dont think these movements have gone too far. What me too and times up are about are making sure that we foster safe and inclusive workplaces in our country, Kryst said. As an attorney, thats exactly what I want to hear, and thats exactly what I want for this country. I think theyre good movements.

The 27-year-old from Charlotte earned her MBA at Wake Forest University before becoming a civil litigation lawyer who does pro-bono work to reduce sentences for prisoners. She is licensed to practice in two states, according to her Miss USA bio.

Miss Oklahoma Triana Browne was named second runner-up and Miss New Mexico Alejandra Gonzalez was named first runner-up. This years finalists were an especially diverse group of women, highlighted by Miss New Mexicos speech about immigration.

During the final round of the competition, Kryst said she was happy the pageant was being held in Nevada because it’s the only state in the nation with female majorities in both houses of the state legislature.

1. She placed as the runner-up at the 2019 Miss USA on May 2. Alejandra put her best foot forward throughout the competition. The talented competitor got emotional answering some of the pageant questions, like issues she’d like to see brought up during the United States 2020 presidential election, and what she thinks of the millennial generation.

Kryst competed against beauty queens who work in a range of fields, including as journalists, entrepreneurs and a physical operations specialist in the US Army reserve.

I dont think these movements have gone too far. What me too and times up are about are making sure that we foster safe and inclusive workplaces in our country, Kryst said. As an attorney, thats exactly what I want to hear, and thats exactly what I want for this country. I think theyre good movements.

Miss New Mexico Alejandra Gonzalez was the first-runner up and Miss Oklahoma Triana Browne was the second runner-up.
