Wisconsin Beauty Queen- Child of Alcoholics
The newly crowned beauty queen (Miss Wisconsin Central), Mariah Haberman uses her position to support fellow adult children of alcoholics, making ACOA issues her primary platform.
"I grew up in a family where alcohol was very prevalent, alcohol was always around and eventually in 2007 my step father was killed in a drunk driving accident, that obviously changed my life. And it changed my entire family's life."
Haberman believes, "Maybe we could have even saved our family if we had brought this into the open 5-10 years earlier, instead of one of my parents having to die from an issue that we kept quiet about."
She will compete in the upcoming Miss Wisconsin Pageant. The current Miss Wisconsin, Laura Kaeppeler, won the Miss America pageant in January.
