Meet Brianna Burrell, The New Miss Alabama 2023
Brianna Burrell competed as Miss Baldwin County and walked away with the title of Miss Alabama 2023 and a 15 thousand dollar cash scholarship. On top of that, she also earned two preliminary awards in evening gown and talent.

“Now I’m here with the crown on my head, texting her, ‘Look, I did it, I did it,” Brianna said. “Not just for her, not just for me, but for the next Black Miss Alabama, for the next contestants who are going to follow me because they saw themselves in my work.”
Overwhelmed with the feat, she added, “It’s been a whirlwind of emotions and I’m still on an adrenaline rush, but it’s a confirmation and just an amazing sense of accomplishment.”
The Miss Alabama 2023 will spend the next year serving Alabama at public appearances, motivating others, furthering her community service initiative, and finally representing Alabama at the Miss America competition
To prepare for Miss America, Brianna said she will continue to work on her vocal prowess, which is her favorite part of the competition, and also draft a wardrobe that displays who she is.
