She is also the first Miss Michigan to be Miss USA since Kenya Moore won it in 1993.(WIKI)

“This is historic,” Imad Hamad, regional director of the American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee, said. “This shows the greatness of America, how everyone can have a chance to make it.”

Supporters are gathering at La Pita in Dearborn for a party to celebrate Fakih’s win.(SOURCE)

Rima beat out 50 others to take the 2010 Miss USA title in Las Vegas, and she certainly earned it….she is a rare beauty, that exhibited charm,personality, and wit. I always admire a stunningly beautiful and down to earth,girl, that likes to laugh and make jokes.

Rima is that girl!!!

Let’s hope we see her hosting a television program in the future,because the more we see of Rima…the better we will all be.
