NATIONAL US QUEENS
MISS NATIONAL US JR. PRE-TEEN
I am nine years old and I have been working on my platform Victoria's A.R.K. I love giving back and by doing Acts of Random Kindness I can help everyone from people to pets. I spend my days being homeschooled. I love working hard at my twirling skills at my baton studio, I enjoy dancing and LOVE my teacher there. I recently found a passion for taekwondo. I enjoy learning to play the electric guitar. When I am not at my activities you will find me playing a game of UNO or Monopoly with my family. I am blessed to have two families, at home with my mom and step dad I am an only child and at my dads house I have 2 step sisters, 2 step brothers and a half sister. My half brother lives with his dad in Texas. I love pageants, I have learned interview skills, public speaking skills and I have made so many friendships.
One thing I am looking forward to this year as a national queen is making friendships with my sister queens!
MISS NATIONAL US JR. TEEN
Talia Thorson was born & raised in Southeast Wisconsin, & is 16 years old. When she isn’t caring for her chickens, bunny, cows, goats, or ducks (on her 8-acre hobby farm), you can find her playing basketball or volleyball, serving in the community, or improving her special effects makeup skills (a passion that has taken her all the way to Cinema Makeup School in Hollywood!) Talia’s love for lifelong learning prompted her to begin college courses her freshman year of high school. To show other kids how rewarding learning can be, she opened Level-Up, an organization providing free workshops to children all over the country, helping them discover their unique learning styles and try out new hobbies. She is a natural-born leader and uses her God-given talents to impact others’ lives as much as possible. In addition to teaching classes every week, Talia donates her time and resources to organizations like Right to Life (bringing awareness to & educating our youth about the tragedies of abortion & euthanasia, as well as supporting women throughout pregnancy), local food pantries, Little Free Libraries, Advocates of Ozaukee County (meeting the needs of women & children who have escaped from abusive situations), as well as honoring police officers and the elderly, throughout the year.
Her life verse can be found in Proverbs 31:25:
“She is clothed with strength and dignity and she laughs without fear of the future.”
MISS NATIONAL US TEEN
My name is Hailey Johnston, and I am thrilled to be your first Miss National US Teen!
I am 18 years old and currently a senior at Hamilton High School in Chandler, Arizona. I spend my Friday nights on the varsity cheer team cheering on the #2 football team in the state. I started my pageant journey in 2017 living in Wisconsin, then moving across the country my freshman year of high school, my passion for pageants has only grown!
I am on my path to becoming a crime scene investigator, applying to colleges, and the Phoenix Police Academy are next on my check list. Along with being a student, I also work in the sports department at Seville Golf & Country Club!
I have a passion for animals, I volunteer at the Phoenix Humane Society whenever I have the chance, walking dogs and keeping the cats company. COVID has made it much harder but I still try to help animals in as many ways as I can, like bringing in supplies incase stock is running low.
Other things I love are cars, sports, hiking, traveling, and spending time with family and friends!
I can’t wait to meet all my sister queens and have an amazing year together!
