Tinley McWhorter is the third runner up to Miss Nevada Teen USA 2019! I competed as Miss Henderson Teen USA 2019!
I was also Miss Summerlin Teen USA 2018 and competed in Miss Nevada Teen USA 2018, Miss Nevada High School America 2017 and Miss Nevada Jr. High School America 2015!
I was born and live in Las Vegas. I come from a large family. I have 3 sisters, 3 brothers, 3 nephews and 3 nieces. I love to cheer, tumble, skate board and hang out at the beach. I love all types of animals. I wished I could have a zoo.
I would like to bring awareness to children with developmental disabilities and medical challenges. I personally know how it feels to be made fun of for a developmental disability. I am blind in my left eye. Not having sight in my left eye has been a struggle at times, but it is one of the things that has pushed me to be ready to face whatever challenges may cross my path.
I have been called horrible names and teased because of my disability. I want people, especially children and teens to understand that bullying and teasing is hurtful. I started pageantry to boost my self confidence.
I use my crown as a voice to stop Bullying. Bullying follows you home though text messages and social media. I think every child should have the opportunity to grow and learn without the fear of being picked on.
