Rima Fakih is Miss USA 2010 and one of the contestants on USA Network's "WWE Tough Enough."

Rima Fakih's road to becoming Miss USA began when she sold her car to support her childhood dream to enter the Miss Michigan USA pageant. Fakih won the state title and, on May 16, 2010, the 24-year-old won the national title of Miss USA as she was crowned at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Fakih was born in Sour, Lebanon, and immigrated to Queens, New York in 1993. She graduated

from St. John's Preparatory School in 2003 at the age of 17. After graduation, Fakih moved to Dearborn, Michigan, and began a mentoring program to provide children with caring adult role models.

Fakih continued to give back to her community while attending the University of Michigan, where she earned her Bachelor of Arts degree in Economics, with a minor in Business Administration. Active in campus life, Fakih served her fellow students as class senator and president of Students in Free Enterprise (SIFE). She also spent time volunteering for various community organizations.

As ambassador of the Pink Fund, a financial assistance organization, Fakih is dedicated to helping remove the short-term financial burden from breast cancer patients. As Miss Michigan USA 2010, Fakih served as one of the first official pageant ambassadors for women's self- defense awareness, educating women on the importance of taking the necessary precautionary measures to best protect and prepare themselves from unwanted situations.

As Miss USA, Fakih is a spokeswoman for breast and ovarian cancer education, research and legislation - a platform that is close to her heart. She will travel nationwide as an advocate for organizations such as Susan G. Komen for the Cure and Gilda's Club, among others.

When Fakih manages to find free time in her busy schedule, she enjoys traveling, running, dancing and spending time with her younger brother. She especially enjoys playing sports and watching the NFL, particularly the NY Giants. After her reign, Fakih plans to attend law school and contribute to the Service Nation campaign, an initiative that aims to inspire a new era of voluntary citizen service in America.
