Miss Georgia visits

June 27, 2005

Albany--- The new Miss Georgia was in Albany Monday, getting ready to start her drive for the Miss America Pageant.

Twenty-four-year old Monica Pang says that the fact she won the crown Saturday night in Columbus still has not hit her.

Pang came to Albany to have her first Miss Georgia photos made by Art Johnson, the Pageant's Studio Photographer.

This was Pang's third time in the pageant. She is the first Asian American to win the Miss Georgia crown. "I really just want girls to see me, and be able to relate that anybody, no matter what your background is, no matter what your cultural heritage is, you can achieve your dreams," Pang said.

Pang will represent Georgia in the Miss America Pageant, which is still up in the air. For the first time since 1921 the Miss America pageant will not be held in Atlantic City, New Jersey.

The pageant lost it's television agreement and home, so when and where Miss America will be held has not been announced.
