Miss Wisconsin 2013, Paula Mae Kuipper wins the first annual, Miss America Junkies “Most Outstanding Personality” Award!!! Whoooo Hooooo!!! And after much discussion, Founding Junkie made the executive decision to simply SHOW you why we’ve given her this honor of distinction, rather than try to explain it to you… Enjoy just a few of our favorite photos of the lovely Paula Mae…
In fact, Paula’s state crowning photos were our favorite of the whole year! With that genuine of a reaction, we should’ve known she would shine in interview, rock her talent and ultimately earn a spot as a Top 12 finalist at Miss America (in fact, we’re still kicking ourselves for missing that one!).
In addition to having a fabulous personality, Paula Mae is multi-faceted to the core. She’s a collegiate athlete (UM-Milwaukee runner), she’s a musician (playing the piano, clarinet and saxophone), she’s super smart (has one of the highest GPA’s of any student athlete at UM-Milwaukee) and she wants to become a pediatric oncology doctor one day.
Bravo Paula Mae! Without a doubt, we know you’ll be one of our favorite Miss Wisconsin’s from here forward!
Now – regarding this year’s competition — This one was not easy to research – let me tell you! Only 1 of the Top 5 is back this year – and the floor is wide open for anyone who wants to take it!
