Cara Mund is Cum Laude graduate from Harvard Law School and an honors graduate in Business, Entrepreneurship, and Organizations from Brown University.
Mund is known for making history as the first - and only - woman from North Dakota to become Miss America. In her role as Miss America, Cara embarked on a yearlong national speaking tour where she traveled an average of 20,000 miles a month and changed location nearly every 48 hours. She advocated the importance of empowering women, education, and community service. She served as the National Goodwill Ambassador for the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals, worked closely with the Make-A-Wish Foundation, and supported troops with the United Service Organizations. Mund’s time as Miss America cemented her determination to be involved in public service and her desire to pursue a legal education.
Now, Cara is running to make history again... if she is elected this November, she will be the first independent and first female Congresswoman in the history of North Dakota.
