HONOLULU (AP) - A self-described ''Army brat'' has been crowned Miss Hawaii USA.
Angela Byrd claimed the title Saturday night in Honolulu.
She will represent Hawaii in the 2011 Miss USA Pageant in April. The winner goes on to compete for Miss Universe.
The 23-year-old Byrd hopes to follow Brook Lee, of Hawaii, who won the Miss Universe title in 1997.
Byrd is a model. She said her Army family moved 15 times in 18 years before coming to Hawaii.
