Now the state of Rhode Island will get a huge appreciate from being a smaller state to be one of the popular states just because Miss Oliva Culpo came from that state.

It was the first time; Miss USA used twitter followers to ask a question to the contestants. Nothing was embarrassed. The question was: “Would you feel it would be fair that a transgender woman wins the Miss USA title over a natural-born woman?”

Her respond was:  “I do think that  would be fair, but I can understand that people would be a little apprehensive to take that road because there is a tradition of natural-born women, but today where there are so many surgeries and so many people out there who have a need to change for a happier life, I do accept that because I believe it’s a free country,” Culpo said. Beauty and brains, I like that in a woman.

Culpo is a 2010 graduate of St. Mary Academy Bay View, an all-girls Catholic school inRiverside, where she was a member of the National Honor Society. She is a sophomore atBostonUniversityand said she comes from a big, Italian family. She described herself as a nerd and model. That’s good everyone  is a Geek, I am too. I like to read and write interesting stuff that makes people smart and talented.

On winning the titled of Miss USA “I was just so surprised, so shocked, so honored to be there,” she said of her win. She is beautiful and talented.
