Miss New York USA 2022 is Heather Nunez


Miss Sugar Hill, Heather Nunez, was crowned Miss New York USA 2022 in a glittering state competition held Friday, June 4 at the Seneca Niagara Resort & Casino in Niagara Falls.

Originally from the Dominican Republic, the 26-year-old beauty who holds a degree in criminal justice grew up in New York City. Before finally winning her state title, she only placed as runner-up during the past two editions of Miss New York USA.


"I am representing survivors of domestic violence, all the hard work I’ve accomplished was for you. So that you can see me and feel hope. We aren’t afraid to use our voice and we aren’t victims. We are survivors," she shared on social media before the competition.

Last year's titleholder, Briana Siaca, relinquished her reign and crowned her successor at the end of the event.

Heather will now prepare to represent New York at the national Miss USA 2022 pageant, whose date and venue are yet to be announced.
