Arab-American Rima Fakih wins Miss USA 2010

Last night Lebanese-American Rima Fakih wins Miss USA 2010 and she is the first known Arab woman to win a national beauty title.   The beautiful brunette moved to the United States as an infant and was raised in New York City, and then moved to the heavily Arab populated Deaborn Michigan in 2003. Educated in Catholic schools, she and her family  celebrates both  the Muslim and Christian faith.

The official platform for the Miss USA pageant is  breast and ovarian cancer awareness, but Rima is also passionate about equal health insurance coverage and stated during the interview portion:

"I believe that birth control is just like every other medication even though it's a controlled substance."

Miss Fakih was crowned the winner of the pageant wearing a beautiful "wedding white" strapless  gown with a long train that gave her a bit of trouble on the runway.
