2013 Miss Black &Gold Winner
University of Southern California
Diamond Polk is a fun loving Pisces that’s addicted to hot yoga. Even though she always shines
bright, this pageant princess is afraid of the dark unless she’s eating chocolate! You won’t find
Diamond watching a scary movie, unless it’s a parody, because she loves to laugh and make
others around her laugh even harder.
Diamond is a senior at the University of Southern California studying theatre and
entrepreneurship. She excels on the stage and hopes to become a Broadway star–entertaining
the masses, dazzling audiences around the world. Diamond enjoys acting, dancing, trying to
sing like Beyonce, improvisation, baking, and then eating her creations. You will always find
Diamond smiling, ‘cause ain’t nobody got time for frowns!
Diamond stays active on campus as she serves a Theatre Ambassador, Orientation Advisor—
mentoring incoming freshman, transfer, international, and graduate students, Alcohol Abuse
Prevention mentor, and Explore USC panelist. She is always looking for more opportunities to
get involved and make change happen on and off campus. Yes, diamonds are a girls’ best friend;
but everyone will fall in love.
