NEW YORK—It's been a whirlwind three days for North Dakota's own Miss America, Cara Mund.

Mund, who is from Bismarck, is currently in New York doing a press tour after winning the title in Atlantic City Sunday night.

It's just the beginning of a busy year ahead.

She says she expects to be changing locations about every 48 hours.

She is heading to Los Angeles Thursday, then back to Atlantic City and then Washington, D.C.

A "homecoming" event in North Dakota is also in the works.

By now, most of us have seen that crowning moment when her name was announced as the winner.

We spoke to her over the phone Wednesday and she gave us some insight on what was going through her head.

"When they called my name, I remember the exact moment he called it but then I kind of—I don't remember anything after that. I don't remember Savvy putting on the crown or the sash. I still can't believe that it happened. I wake up every day wondering if it's just a dream or if this is really it," said Mund.

During her year as Miss America, Mund will make appearances, visit Children's Miracle Network hospitals, and continue her work with the Make-a-Wish program.
