Emma Broyles was recently crowned Miss America 2022 and, out of interest, people want to know more about her background, including race and age.
It’s time for pageantry season! The annual Miss USA and Miss Universe pageants took place in the previous two weeks, followed by last week’s announcement of the winner of this year’s contest. On November 2, 1873, the first Miss America pageant was held at Thomas Edison’s laboratory in New York City. The winner received a $7000 scholarship and other prizes plus a sash and crown to wear during a coronation ceremony at Madison Square Garden in New York City on December 28th. On June 7th of this year, Emma Broyles of Alaska became the new queen of beauty after winning the competition with her classmates from Tununak Elementary School.
Broyles, a native of Anchorage, charmed the crowd when she described her involvement with the Special Olympics and revealed her struggles with mental illness.Even though she is on stage, there are still aspects of her life that viewers may not be aware of, and we’ve done some investigating so you don’t have to.
Emma Broyles: age and ethnicity
She is a 20-year-old Leo. She also has a birthday between 23 July and 22 August, which suggests she was born in 2001.
According to reports, Broyles’ father is named Ron and his mother is Julia. Broyles has Korean roots through her mother, who is half-Korean and a Korean-American. The pageant winner declared in an old Instagram post that her grandparents came to the United States 50 years ago in Anchorage.
After winning Miss Anchorage’s Outstanding Teen in 2017 at the age of 16, Breyles joined her first pageant, Miss Alaska’s Junior SuperStar. She later competed in a different state’s edition of the pageant called Miss America’s Outstanding Teen. After her term as Alaska’s Outstanding Teen was over, she took a four-year hiatus from competing. It appears that taking a break was beneficial; she won Miss Alaska 2021 at the end of June after competing for four years. Broyles will be juggling her Miss America obligations with her studies at Arizona State University this fall. She’s a sophomore studying biomedical science and voice performance at Barrett, The Honors College. Her initial interest was in theatre, but as she learned more about it, her scientific interest grew. Now she has them all!
Does she have siblings?
The 20-year-old has two brothers, according to CelebsWeek. The Focus can only confirm that she has at least one older brother.
She came out of nowhere during the preliminary round with her social campaign “Building Community Through Special Olympics,” which was inspired by her brother who has Down’s syndrome.
The Special Olympics is a nonprofit organization that promotes sports training and competition for people with intellectual or physical challenges. After more than a decade of volunteering with the organization, Broyles’ family was even named Alaska’s Family Of The Year by Special Olympics.
“I have been involved with Special Olympics since (my brother) first became eligible to be an athlete when he was seven,” she says. “I really hope with my work I’m able to see life-long volunteers of Special Olympics, life-long supporters.”
