A new Miss USA has been crowned! Asya Branch, whose first accomplishment was becoming the first-ever Black Miss Mississippi, can now be referred to as Miss USA 2020 according to Good Morning America.

In an earlier interview with Miss Mississippi USA before the competition, Branch spoke about how she plans to tackle criminal justice and prison reform during her tenure as Miss USA 2020. Her father being incarcerated for 10 years has inspired her to advocate for reform.

“I will continue fighting for criminal justice and prison reform; that’s something that is near and dear to

my heart,” Branch said on “GMA.” “I hope to continue making change within throughout my reign.”

Branch also told the Mississippi Clarion-Ledger, “It’s really an honor to be able to set this example for young girls to know that they don’t have to look like the person that came before them in order to accomplish their goal,” she said. “I truly am grateful to hold this title and continue to be a positive role

model for all of our youth to know that their life circumstances doesn’t have to define them and that they’re more than capable of accomplishing anything that they set their minds to.”
