At the age of 11, Ms. Dee began tumbling at Odyssey Allstars in preparation to become a competitive All-star cheerleader. Since then, she has been a part of national championship winning cheer teams, her high school’s varsity squad, and has taught tumbling at other studios. Ms. Dee has been dancing since the age of 2 and now promotes her time to teaching other dancers to love tumbling too! Ms. Dee will graduate form the University of North Carolina at Charlotte, where she is a dancer for the Range of Motion Dance Ensemble, in May. Aside from tumbling and dancing, Ms. Dee competes in the Miss America Scholarship Pageant System. She was the first ever Miss Belmont in 2016, and continued to chase the Miss North Carolina crown as Miss Queen City 2017. She is currently Miss Mecklenburg County 2018 and will grace the Miss North Carolina stage again in June.
