During the Miss USA 2019 competition, Nia, who is black, described how music helped her find her identity.
“I grew up at a predominately Caucasian school and there was only five percent minority, and I felt out of place so much because of the color of my skin.
“But growing up, I found my love of arts, and through music that helped me to feel positive about myself and about who I was.”
But pics of her without makeup began circulating shortly after she was crowned the Miss America 2019 winner. And almost immediately, haters came out – and tried to call her all kinds of names.
See the pics below.
Nia Franklin looks BEAUTIFUL, despite what all the haters are saying. She is a graduate of the University of North Carolina School of the Arts, where she studied music composition.
