Gabrielle Walter is Miss New York 2017. "When you get this title, you not only have a crown and sash, but you have an opportunity to make a difference in other people's lives." This quote represents Walter very well as she is already out making a difference across her state with her title. When she isn't busy doing community service or promoting her platform, DreamUp New York, you can find Walter taking an interest in her studies as she aims to pursue a career in tax law. Keep your eyes open for Miss New York on the Miss America stage in September.
