Nurse, Diabetic & Lady of Alpha Kappa Alpha Running for Miss Black USA
Meet Channing Scott, Miss Black North Carolina 2016, from Hillsborough, NC. Channing is a recent 2016 Graduate of Hampton University with a Bachelors of Science in Nursing, where she now serves as a Cardio Thoracic ICU nurse at Duke Medical Center. She is also a member of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc.
Channing is really grateful to have the opportunity to compete for such title. "I am humbled and privileged to announce that I will be competing for Miss Black USA 2016! It is my highest honor to represent the great state of North Carolina, and I will represent with my finest work", Channing says.
Channing was diagnosed with type-one diabetes at the age of 18. Because of her diagnosis, her platform for the Miss Black USA 2016 campaign is "Don't Sugarcoat It", promoting diabetes awareness in communities.
