Sapna Raghavan, an Indian American student at the Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute will be competing in the Miss America competition on Dec. 16, 2021.

When it comes to becoming Miss America, Sapna feels it's like a full time job and does not shy away from that. "I work as a consultant where I work a lot of late nights and early mornings, kind of like the Miss America roll. A big part of this job is to know how to market and brand yourself, networking and I can't wait to bring my business side to this role and show the world that Miss America is someone everyone should be talking about," she said.
