Walker was destined for pageant stardom with pageant winners running in the family. Her mother was Miss Alabama 1985 and went on to place as 4th runner-up to Miss America. Her sister was Miss Alabama’s Outstanding Teen 2010 and went on to place 2nd runner-up at the national pageant.
With a love for pageant established early on, Walker began her journey when she was crowned Miss Alabama’s Outstanding Teen 2012 at only 14 years-old, making her one of the youngest contestants to ever win the title. While she did not place at the national pageant, she was awarded the Auburn University Scholarship, covering all her tuition and expenses should she choose to attend.
Her mother has been a close part of her pageant journey. Walker’s mother was her ballet teacher growing up and even choreographed her winning routines at Miss Alabama. She also made one of Walker’s costumes for this year’s pageant.
Walker won the title of Miss Alabama 2018 on her third try after placing 1st runner-up in 2017 and 2016.
Her platform "Let's Talk Trash"--Green Kids for a Green Planet, focuses on teaching youth the three R's of sustainability: Reduce, Reuse, Recycle.
She started "Let's Talk Trash" and a glass recycling project in her neighborhood three years ago. Since starting the recycling project, she has helped deliver more than one ton of glass to recycling centers across the state. Her goal as Miss Alabama is to start sustainability programs in as many Alabama elementary schools as possible.
She found her love for musical theatre as a senior at Oak Mountain High School when she was cast as Fiona in her high school production of Shrek the Musical. She is currently a junior musical theatre major at the University of Alabama.
