About Me

My Family

I grew up in Jackson, Mississippi and currently in the 10th grade.   I am honored to be Miss Modern South's Outstanding Teen for 2019.   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 Hobbies

 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 Platform

 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.
