He mentioned that she cared for other people and made an effort to assist others. He sadly made the point that it is simply awful to witness her death so quickly, explaining how hard it is believe that “they’re here one minute and gone the next, you’re well aware that the only time you’ll see them again is when you die.”

As a teenager, she began competing in pageants, following in the footsteps of her mother, April Simpkins, who was elected Mrs. North Carolina United States in 2002.

Kryst became the oldest lady to ever be elected Miss USA at the age of 28 months after winning Miss North Carolina USA. Due to the COVID lockdown, she went on to become the longest-reigning victor, with a record 557 days in office.

Kryst worked as a civil litigation attorney after graduating from Wake Forest University with a law degree and an MBA. She was a global impact ambassador for Dress for Success, a group that helps low-income women find work, and she wrote for a blog called White Collar Glam about business clothing.

Kryst went on to become a New York correspondent for the celebrity and entertainment show Extra after winning Miss USA. She was nominated for two Daytime Emmys for her role on the show.
