Last year Ryleigh was stucked, check here what she said after orientation online:I can’t believe orientation has already passed! Last year due to covid, I had almost 2 years in between my crowning and orientation lol!



2 days late but, TAP is worth it! Fun Fact: I’ve been tapping since I was 6 years old! So far I’ve competed 4 tap solos + my talent for Miss Maryland!

TAP is much more than my pink shoes! The Miss America Organization has given me the platform to create my social impact initiative. I have combined my favorite style of dance and a passion for a greater focus on teen anxiety, to create TAP: Teen Anxiety Pals!
