Miss USA Says She Faced Sexism Early in Her Career
Cheslie Kryst, 28, is a resident of Charlotte, North Carolina, and is an attorney.
"It is really exciting, I can't believe it," Cheslie Kryst told Inside Edition of the history making win. "I think it would be exciting as an onlooker but it is even more thrilling to be one-third of that trifecta."
Kaliegh Garris is the current Miss Teen USA and Nia Franklin is Miss America.
The 28-year-old from Charlotte, North Carolina, is an attorney. And it was in this field, she said, that she learned an important lesson about sexism.
