Prior to winning Miss America, Hagan was also Miss Brooklyn 2010, Miss Manhattan 2011, Miss New York City 2012 and a two-time Miss New York first runner-up.

When living in Alabama, Hagan had been runner-up in the Miss Alabama's Outstanding Teen program.

Early life and education

Hagan was born in Memphis, Tennessee and was raised in Opelika, Alabama. She graduated from Opelika High School in 2007. Her parents were raised in Auburn, Alabama. She was influenced by her formative years spent with a mother who ran a dance studio in the Auburn-Opelika area, where she was raised. Her grandmother also ran a dance studio in Tennessee, where Hagan was born. She is a former student at Auburn University, where she spent a year studying biomedical science. She was a member of the sorority Pi Beta Phi Alabama Gamma chapter, becoming the fourth Pi Beta Phi to become Miss America (Marilyn Van Derbur, Jackie Mayer, and Susan Akin).

She moved to Brooklyn in October 2008. At the time of her arrival, she had less than $1000 and no job. Several sources stated that Hagan was a Park Slope resident when she won Miss America. The Wall Street Journal ran a correction, corroborated by The New York Times, that she was a resident of Windsor Terrace, Brooklyn at the time. Hagan had lived in six different Brooklyn neighborhoods between her arrival in 2008 and her Miss America victory in 2013, including Sunset Park and Williamsburg.

At the time of the 2013 Miss America competition, she was a Fashion Institute of Technology (FIT) student, where she studied advertising, marketing and communications with aspirations of a profession related to cosmetic and fragrance marketing. At FIT, she was a part of the Presidential Honors Program. Her three placements in the Miss New York competition and the Miss America title provided her with sufficient scholarship monies to pay for her entire FIT tuition. She trained several different physical and mental methods to prepare for the pageant. Her fitness trainers included Richard Talens of social fitness network Fitocracy, Sohee Lee, and Mark Fisher of Mark Fisher Fitness. One of her training elements was the CrossFit exercise program.


When she moved to New York, Hagan first worked there for a few years, before using the scholarship money she had won since 2010 to enroll at the Fashion Institute of Technology (FIT), where she earned a degree in Advertising, Marketing and Communications. After her reign as Miss America, she had shifted her interest from marketing to communication and television hosting and changed her major to communications. Following her graduation she moved to Los Angeles to pursue a television career. She later returned to New York City and started a personal branding business called "Define: Mind. Mission. Marketing." with Claire Buffie, Miss New York 2010 to work as a marketing consultant.

In August 2016, Hagan was hired as a reporter by WLTZ-TV, which is based in Columbus, Georgia, and reported from her home region East Alabama and the Columbus area. She was promoted to news anchor of the station's first evening news show WLTZ First News in April 2017 and worked in that position until February 2018, when she declared her congressional candidacy and moved back to her home town Opelika.

Hagan ran for Alabama's 3rd congressional district in the 2018 congressional election as a Democrat, after she had been asked to do so by her fellow citizens. Hagan was endorsed by the Alabama New South Alliance, the Retail, Wholesale and Department Store Union, End Citizens United, Lilly Ledbetter, and received a "Gun Sense Candidate" distinction from Moms Demand Action. In the first quarter, Hagan raised over $100k for her congressional race. Her campaign was ultimately unsuccessful. She was defeated in the election by incumbent Mike Rogers. While Hagan had explained in a 2013 interview as Miss America that she could not imagine to ever go into politics, she now said after her candidacy that "running for office [was] the thing [she was] the single most proud of".

After the 2018 election, Hagan did marketing and social media work for the Miss America organization. She also served as communications director for Michael Bloomberg's presidential campaign in Alabama during the race for the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination. In 2020, she moved to Madison, Alabama and became a communications manager for the Business Outreach Center Network, working with small business owners from underserved communities like immigrants and women.

Hagan is running for a seat in the Alabama House of Representatives against sitting House Speaker Mac McCutcheon in District 25 in the 2022 election.
