Miss Mississippi Marie Wicks simply exudes warmth, generosity and sincerity. When watching videos about her, she strikes us as the kind of person who would casually stroll along an quiet, tree-lined street, curiously considering whether or not anyone in history ever walked the same path.
After all, Marie has an inquisitive mind… She has a dual degree in International Studies and French, with a minor in Chemistry. And while her future plans are not 100% set in stone, she’s thinking of a combination of medicine and law because, as she says, she just “loves learning”.
At Miss America, Marie was named a Quality of Life finalist, a non-finalist Talent Award winner and was also Mallory Hagan’s roommate. A couple of select awards to be proud of and 10 days with the future Miss America may prove to the least of Marie’s accomplishments if she continues to learn, grow and be that classic, “Southern Soul” we love.
And now – Miss Mississippi 2013 is crazy competitive! With 35 contestants, this one will not be easy at all!
