Miss America at Macy's on State Street (Chicago)

WHO:         Miss America 2014, Nina Davuluri is a pioneer as the first Miss America (and Miss New York) of Indian descent, of which she is just as proud of as being American. Davuluri’s candidate platform has been “Diversity Through Cultural Competency” since she first competed for the title of Miss New York. Her commitment to this platform led her to answer her on-stage question saying, “the girl next door is evolving.” Inspired by her experience of dealing with the subsequent social media backlash, Davuluri responded with a campaign of her own, #circlesofunity, inviting her followers to tweet her posts and pictures about what it means to be culturally aware, and to elevate a social media conversation about the value of social and economic diversity.

WHAT:        Miss America 2014, Nina Davuluri will be at Macy’s on State Street for her next stop in a special tour hosted by Macy’s in honor of Asian-Pacific American Heritage Month. The tour aims to celebrate the contributions and unique influence of Asian-Americans.

The event will feature a live performance with Indian Bollywood dancers followed by a Q&A session with Davuluri. Following the Q&A session, guests are welcomed to shop the latest trends. Guests that make any $25 Macy’s purchase during the event will receive a photo with Miss America.

       
WHEN:        Friday, May 9th at 5:30PM
WHERE:        Macy’s on State Street, Lower Level Atrium
                111 N State St, Chicago, IL  60602
