The former Miss New York attended a Bollywood-inspired homecoming reception party at The Oncenter on Nov. 16 bringing with her a new beacon of hope for Syracuse’s Indian community.

Recently-crowned Miss America Nina Davuluri has come to stand as a symbol for a new generation of Indian-Americans. 

“[Indian Americans] haven’t really had their spotlight yet,” said Miss Florida Myrrhanda Jones. “I think the world is ready. We have a black president, [America] is ready for more prominent leaders from diverse backgrounds.”
