First Woman with Down Phil Murphy State House 2 months ago   00:47

Mikayla Holmgren made history Sunday night at the Miss Minnesota USA pageant.
Holmgren became the first woman with Down syndrome to compete in a state Miss USA pageant. The 22-year-old Bethel University student from Stillwater, Minnesota, also won two awards: the Spirit of Miss USA Award and the Director’s Award. Holmgren said that she was overwhelmed to be participating in the Miss Minnesota USA pageant. “I was super shocked, I was in tears,” she said. “I went from a special needs pageant to the biggest pageant in the world. It’s kind of crazy.”
