29 Mar

by Yulia Mikhalchuk

On March 28, The Embassy of Croatia was “attacked” by the cloud of beauty. The youngest in contest history, 17 y.o. Miss America Teresa Scanlan, was accompanied by 15 top Misses of the competition, to the reception. Organized to celebrate Miss America’s Croatian roots, the “fiesty” event was attended by several hundreds invitees. The Misses were escorted by Marine Barracks Washington 8th & I. TheĀ  Croatian Ambassador to America Kolinda Grabar-Kitarovic invited all the guests and Misses to visit beautiful Croatia. Teresa Scanlan announced that she is very proud of her Croatian heritage. Although she has not visited her original country for several years now, she will do so next year, as she promised to her Grandparents, still living on Croatian island Ilovik.
