The first Muslim to win the Miss USA competition in 2010, Rima Fakih, has finally converted to Christianity. Rima converted to Christianity last month in preparation for her marriage in Lebanon next week .
“I’d like to say I’m American first, and I am an Arab-American, I am Lebanese-American, and I am Muslim-American.” According to the news site Albawaba, Fakih only connected to her Muslim roots in college.

“When I went to the University of Michigan, because there’s more of a Muslim community, my dad wanted me to learn more about Islam,” she said. “I didn’t know much about Ramadan and other holidays, and my dad wanted me to take that opportunity and learn.”

Rima Fakih is a Lebanese-American actress, professional wrestler model, and beauty pageant titleholder who won Miss USA 2010. She represented the state of Michigan in the national pageant, having previously won the 2010 Miss Michigan USA pageant.
