This year’s Miss California was named last week.
The Miss California competition provides thousands of dollars in scholarships to help young women further their education.
Jazmin Avalos, a 24-year-old graduate of California State University, Fullerton, joined Mae to talk about her journey as the third Latina woman crowned as Miss California 2021. She won a $20,000 scholarship and hopes to help end substance abuse.
A follow-up two-hour special, “The Making of Miss California: Road to the Crown,” airs July 10 from 8 p.m. to 10 p.m. on FOX40.
