In case you haven’t heard, Arkansas’ own (and our home girl) Savvy Shields was crowned Miss America 2017 in Atlantic City, New Jersey this weekend.

Not a day after receiving the crown, the 21-year-old beauty queen headed out to visit the “Good Morning America” set, where she talked about what she wants to accomplish during her reign, the importance of the Miss America Organization and her unique name — something she’s gotten comments and questions about her whole life.

“[My real name is Savannah], but the only person that calls me Savannah is my ballet teacher, because it’s classical,” she laughed. “So, everyone else in my life calls me Savvy.”
