Miss USA 2017 Kara McCullough Talks Women in the Workplace
Kara McCullough was born in Naples, Italy; however, she has also lived in Japan, Sicily, Hawaii and South Korea. She graduated from South Carolina State University with a bachelor’s degree in chemistry and runs a community outreach program for children called Science Exploration for Kids.
Moreover, Kara’s mother is a retired United States Navy Chief Petty Officer. Therefore, it is safe to say that McCullough grew up seeing a strong woman influence in action. In reference to women in the workplace Miss USA 2017 had this to say:
“As a woman scientist in the government, I’d like to lately transpose the word feminism to equalism. I don’t really want to consider myself- try not to consider my self like this die-hard; like, “Oh, I don’t really care about men.”
But one thing I’m gonna say… And I say firsthand: I have witnessed the impact that women have in leadership in the medical sciences, as well as just in the office environment. So as Miss USA, I would hope to promote that type of leadership responsibility globally to so many women worldwide.”
Kara definitely seems like a woman on a mission so we are confident she will achieve everything she sets her heart and mind on. Congratulations Kara on your win!
