Rahmeka Cox is Miss New York 2018! After placing First Runner-Up at the state competition, she ascended to the crown after Nia Franklin, the original winner, went on to win Miss America 2019. Cox was announced as the new Miss New York 2018 on September 11, 2018.

She founded the organization, "It Only Takes One: Kidney Health. Donor Education.," which focuses on kidney health and donation. Cox founded the organization to honor her mother's journey with kidney disease, dialysis and eventual kidney transplant. The organization advocates for legislation and donor education.

Cox grew up in Fayetteville, North Carolina, but moved to New York for school. During her time at New York University, she conducted research to access anemia in hemodialysis patients and studied cystinuria—which is a genetic disease related to kidney stones. She graduated from New York University School of Public Health in 2018 with her Master's Degree in Public Health.
