Taelyr lost her father and grandmother when she was 11-years-old and her mother was battling with alcoholism which eventually made the diva sole caretaker of herself and two sisters. The family had to deal with the hardships of life and often found themselves homeless. While this turn of events might have left most children feeling helpless and destined to stay on the same path, Taelyr used her experience as motivation.  She realized at a young age that “thoughts become things” and used her positive mindset to literally turn her life around.  She removed herself from the toxic situation and became an active member of Al-Anon.  Seeing the negative impact substance abuse had on her family, she vowed to never drink alcohol.

Taelyr started modeling professionally along with working as a scout at the beach by the time she was 16-years-old. The diva’s hard work has helped her work in the industry for more last 10 years for brands like Target, American Apparel. TJ Maxx, Walmart, Bobbi Brown, and is currently featured in all Sephora stores for Tarte Cosmetics. Taelyr also starred in a reality show named, ‘The Vineyard’ on ABC Family in 2013. During the shooting of the show, Taelyr opened about her struggles and realized that how much power her story and she has. Not only did she feel as if she now had ownership of her situation, but she also realized she could help others by sharing her experience.

The diva wants to use the platform of Miss USA 2020 to advocate people about the struggles the family must face while living with an alcoholic. She wants to reach out to the people especially children who are dealing with the similar past like hers. She wants to tell her story to empower and educate youth about the many resources that are available to them and show them that with a strong desire and positive mindset they can create great lives for themselves. One of the most effective motivators for Taelyr when she felt she had nowhere to turn was her vision board.  She would like to share this creative outlet by hosting workshops to allow others to create boards to visually lay out their goals and aspirations to help turn them into realities.

Combining her desire to share her past experiences to aid others with their current struggles and her love for travel and meeting new people, Taelyr is humbled, honored and excited to represent Maryland at Miss USA and throughout her reign. She is strong and confident and her experience in the field will surely help her during the pageant. Taelyr’s dedication and hard work for the title of Miss USA 2020 is clearly shown and her positive attitude towards approaching to things she wants is commendable. She has always been very self-assured that wants to win the title and would give her best shot to win it.
