Before being crowned Miss America 2008, Kirsten Haglund struggled with anorexia and finding her identity, but a reading of the Bible, specifically the book of Psalms, changed her forever, as she shares in a new "I Am Second" video prior to the Sept. 11 airing of the Miss America 2017 pageant.

"It's about food, and it's about losing weight, creating a body type you want, but it is about so much more than that. It is slavery," she describes her condition at the time.
