She's the first ever Miss Stamford.
"It's so exciting," said Cara Cama. "I can't even believe I'm Miss Stamford."
But Cara Ann Cama is no stranger to holding a title. In 2012, she was named Miss New Haven County.
"I was so excited. I won my first local and I went to Miss Connecticut and I ended up winning the academic state awards," said Cama.
Now as Miss Stamford, Cama has another shot at winningthe Miss Connecticut crown.
"I was so excited to win and I'm just so ready," said Cama.
The first Miss Stamford pageant was organized by Miss Connecticut Kaitlyn Tarpey's mother Ann. It was held this month.
"Now that I'm kind of done competing she decided that she wants to have the best local in the entire state of Connecticut," said Tarpey. "And she's a very competitive driven person, just like me."
Tarpey says she's proud of her mom.
"She's such a selfless woman that I'm really excited to see how she transforms the program and the amount of scholarship money, and the sponsors, and Cara," said Tarpey. "I know she will be cheering just as loud for her as she will be for me in June when I'm giving up my title. So, it's really cool."
Cama, 22 years old from West Haven, hopes to win the Miss Connecticut crown in June. Her platform is peer mentoring.
