With the thrill of victory still fresh, Miss New York City 2014 Kira Kazantsev has been going around the city using her new title to bring attention to things like child abuse and domestic violence prevention. But tomorrow, Kazantsev, the first Russian-speaking Miss New York City, will visit the neighborhood to celebrate her fellow women around the globe.
Kazantsev will visit Cherry Hill food market at 1901 Emmons Avenue for a noon celebration organized by the Be Proud Foundation. The first Russian-speaking Miss New York City will be presented by the first Russian-speaking assemblyman in New York State, Alec Brook-Krasny.
Kazantsev is 23 and she won the crown on February 2. Her talent for the event was vocals. She’s a recent graduate of Hofstra University’s Honors College and works as a waitress to pay her way through law school.
