BX teen named Miss Teen New York
(07/26/03) RIVERDALE - Adriana Diaz isn't the typical Bronx teenager. She is an 18-year-old sophomore at Princeton University, devotes her spare time to helping charities, is an athlete and budding actress, and now is Miss Teen New York State.
She first entered the contest three years ago after an entry form was sent to her home. Diaz was chosen from more than 100 teens across the state this year as the winner.
She will head out to California this week to represent her state at the Miss Teen USA National Competition, and her parents will join her there a week later.
Diaz is only the second girl from the Bronx of Dominican descent to win the title.
