There’s no mistaking Tommy’s outgoing personality & country girl heart. You will often find her to be first to get her hands dirty & pick up a shovel or drill to help friends in need. Tommy Lynn maintains a strong relationship to her community by volunteering with various local charities & outreach programs. With a unorthodox upbringing, Tommy Lynn has overcome adversity from being an abused & forgotten child, to later being adopted into a loving family, her own version of the popular movie “The Blindside”, highlighting Michael Oher’s troubling childhood. She accredits her success and happiness to the support of her peers, creating an enormous network of extended family.
She continues motivational speaking for youth at risk in Tucson, Arizona by advocating, “You don’t have to be a product of your environment, regardless of your circumstances.” She is fluent in Sign Language, due to her biological mother being deaf, a self taught painter, avid line/swing dancer & sports enthusiast.
Tommy Lynn may not have had the easiest of childhoods, but she accredits her difficulties into shaping her into the woman that she is. Her peers often recognize her as a go-getter, “Jane of all Trades”, and someone you can depend on. One of Tommy’s favorite quotes to reference is something her adopted father often reminds her during a time of difficulty or challenge; “Adapt, Improvise, Overcome”. She often encourages her peers with these words in hopes to encourage other to break barriers & stereotypes.
Tommy’s next goal is representing the 48th state at the nationally televised Miss USA Pageant.
