Being an immigrant from the Middle East at an early age and living in the US we would on any occasion jump for joy when anyone Middle Eastern, regardless of their ethnicity, got an award or some limelight. Its funny we felt some sort of solidarity with them in that: Look we can do this too. Its a great shot and yeah Miss USA is not the greatest thing in the world but she should be proud of her aunt and she is a gorgeous one too. Lovely!
