Some things just come easier to certain people.
Take Iowa Hawkeye cheerleader Rebecca Hodge, for example. She won the Miss Iowa USA 2012 beauty pageant last month despite never having competed in a pageant before. She found out about it when a co-worker received a letter for the pageant:
“My friend thought I would be perfect for it and told me I needed to try out,” Hodge told HawkeyeSports.com. “I thought, `I’m not one of those girls’…but I guess I am.”
That’s an understatement.
Next up is the the Miss USA 2012 pageant, which will be held next June. Hodge will compete in front of Donald Trump on NBC to replace Alyssa Campanella of California.
Not bad for a first timer.
