I grew up in Jackson, Mississippi and currently in the 11th grade. I am honored to be Miss Central Mississippi's Outstanding Teen for 2020. From my perspective, every day is a brand new adventure and my “happy place” is spending time with my family and friends. Traveling with my family is one of my favorite things, especially with my brother, Jake. I delight in learning from different cultures while experiencing different foods and languages.
My family says I have been singing from the time I could talk. I was overjoyed to begin voice and acting lessons around eight years old and discovered quickly my passion for music, stage and film. I have had the privilege of being in a number of musicals as well as film and television broadcasting or in the music industry. I recognize that my talents are from God and my life is grounded because of my faith in Jesus Christ.
My personal passion and platform is Shining A Light on Special Needs. I want to be part of the solution to change perceptions and educate Mississippians on the importance of and the contribution the special needs community makes to our families, churches, and society as a whole.
