Morland hopes to use her mental health awareness platform to educate Florida students on mental health resources.
Taylor Morland has been selected to represent Flagler Beach at the Miss Florida USA/Miss Florida Teen USA Competition this May 27-29, on stage at the Coral Springs Center for the Arts.
Both Miss Florida USA 2022 and Miss Florida Teen USA 2022 will advance to the national competitions of Miss Teen USA and Miss USA and ultimately Miss Universe.
Hometown delegates across Florida cities are selected based on academic and professional interests, community interest and involvement, and a passion for the pursuit of excellence.
Morland is a mental health advocate, social media manager, esthetician and professional model signed with Wilhelmina Models Miami and Los Angeles and signed at the age of 14. Wilhelmina Models is the largest full service agency in the world.
She was recently featured in the September 2021 issue of Ocean Drive Magazine as “Model Citizen” of the month.
Morland is a licensed esthetician full specialist and is planning to open a medical spa in the future. She graduated high school at age 16 and has vowed to use her mental health awareness platform to educate Florida students on mental health resources. She started a petition and initiative to make mental health services available to all Florida students 24/7 with digital on demand meetings with health professionals due to the long waitlist she was exposed to when being diagnosed with a chemical imbalance/ADHD.
Morland finished second runner up last year and has her sights on the crown of Miss Florida Teen USA 2022, as this is her last year of eligibility to compete as a teen.
For young women between the ages of 14-27 who wish to represent their hometown at the state competition, applications are being accepted for 2023 at the official website, www.MissFloridaUSA.com.
