It was with excitement & a little bit of surprise that 21 year-old Mallory Hagan made her mark in Monument City. On
March 28, 2010, Hagan wowed judges and audience alike at the Brooklyn Center for the Performing
Arts to become the next Miss Brooklyn to get her chance at the coveted crown of Miss New
York. “I absolutely did not expect to win,”
said Hagan, “but I am thrilled to pieces that I get to spend the next year representing this amazing borough!”
A Bed-Stuy resident for almost two years, Mallory is humbled by her acceptance in the borough of kings. “I
moved to NY in October 2008 with less than a grand in my pocket, a BIG suitcase &…a lot of hope,” says Hagan,
who hails from Opelika, Alabama.
Formerly a student at Auburn University,
Mallory decided to follow her dreams & give the big city a try. She quickly found her place in Brooklyn.
While this was Hagan’s first attempt at a NY local title; she previously won talent awards and placed
as a runner-up in the Miss Alabama’s Outstanding Teen & Miss Alabama Scholarship Competitions.
An accomplished dancer, Mallory has danced her way across the country, winning awards in various National Dance Competitions.
A relative renaissance woman, Hagan counts poetry & photography amongst her hobbies-and even managed to win percussionist
of the year at her high school! Post her reign, Hagan plans to use her scholarship earnings to obtain her Bachelor’s
Throughout her reign, Hagan will be a spokesperson for the Children’s Miracle Network; the official platform of
the Miss America Scholarship Program, as well as her personal Platform, the Campaign for Real Beauty. She looks forward to
traveling throughout her community as an advocate for the Miss America Organization, promoting participation, personal achievement
& community involvement.
