The beauty queen is not only a physical asset but also is a very valid intellectual asset.

Cosmopolitan.com reports that McCullough, who represented the Columbia district, clinched the Miss USA title ahead of 50 other beautiful contenders.

The Nuclear scientist who is a ‘bomb’ took over ,the mantle from the 2016 winner, Deshauna Barber.

McCullough who was a very strong contender from the outset is seen taking a swift walk in her swim suit and evening gowns with so much ease.

The contender whose bio revealed that she is the founder of a community outreach program designed to foster a greater appreciation for the sciences in young children, took her question and answer session eloquently and intelligently when talking about healthcare.

Miss USA 2017, an “equalist” not a “feminist”

Quizzed on the toughest five questions of the night, the scientist distinguished herself as being an “equalist” rather than a feminist. Stressing on her stand in affordable healthcare in her country, she stated that affordable healthcare is a “privilege” and not a “right.”

The winner who also works at NBD  said during the question-and-answer segment of the 2017 pageant at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center on the Las Vegas Strip that “I’m definitely going to say it’s a privilege.

“As a government employee, I’m granted health care. And I see firsthand that for one, to have health care, you need to have jobs, therefore we need to continue to cultivate this environment so that we’re given the opportunities to have health care as well as jobs for all Americans worldwide.

Speaking on a lighter note she added that she has “a penchant for cooking specialty Italian food.”
