Dimon is Miss Tuscon Teen USA 2018 and will compete for the title of Miss Arizona Teen USA in January 2019. She was also Miss Arizona's Outstanding Teen 2017.

At 8 years old, her and her sister were placed in foster care after being abused and neglected by their birth parents. She spent 5 years in foster care before being adopted. When speaking to the Arizona Foothills Magazine, she said, "During the 5 years I was in foster care, I was very angry and guarded. One coping mechanism I was taught involved channeling that anger and pain through painting and drawing. After being adopted, my parents signed me up for dance and it’s become my new coping skill and a great joy of mine."

As a pageant titleholder, Dimon made it her mission to help children in the foster care system. She is an advocate for the expansion of CASA: Court Appointed Special Advocate program.

Dimon has been accepted to Western New Mexico University and studies Human Services and Elementary Education. She hopes to later study medicine and become a pediatric nurse.
