My name is Tracy Stephens and I currently hold the Ms. Florida Petite 2010 and the Ms. USA Petite 2010 title. I was born in Fayetteville, North Carolina, but I grew up in Brandon, Florida. I now reside in Zephyrhills, FL with my fiancée. I was fortunate enough to have a wonderful father that encouraged me to have dreams and goals for myself. This gave me the foundation to achieve whatever I set my mind to do. My dad is one of my best friends. We do fun and adventurous father/daughter outings like our yearly turkey hunting. This time in the woods with my dad is quality time for both of us and has also taught me a lot about life and many important survival skills. The memories we have are truly priceless.
The other man in my life is my fiancée, Kelly. He has taught me not to take life so serious and enjoy each day, he encourages me in whatever I want to pursue. Kelly has taught me how to saltwater fish and camp. We always have so much fun whether we are playing or working around our home. I am also a certified diver, my girlfriend Renee’ and I took scuba lessons together. We had so much fun taking the class and learning about marine life, what an amazing world it is. I have also gone para-sailing with some of my other friends. I am curious about life so there-in lies my adventurous side. Whatever adventure I choose to experience, I embrace it to the fullest. I have great career with Tampa Electric Company and have been employed with them for fifteen years, achieving many goals within the corporate structure. The one goal that I am the proudest of is a fitness program that I have encouraged many of my colleagues to join. Fitness and a well rounded life style are my biggest passion. I also enjoy donating my time to charitable functions like Paint Your Heart Out, The Kidney Foundation, Breast Cancer Awareness, and Prostate Cancer Awareness just to name a few. Modeling has been one of those adventures that I have also been curious about. While I was in the process of learning about the modeling world, I was asked to enter into the Ms. Florida Petite pageant. I had never thought about the pageant world before, but I figured why not? It would be one more adventure and it sounded like a lot of fun. I had no idea how much hard work went into being in a pageant, I quickly had a new-found respect for the pageant world. All the great coaching and hard work paid off, I was crowned 2010 Ms. Florida Petite! This sent me to nationals where I was crowned 2010 Ms. USA Petite. I recently was crowned in the preliminary pageant for Ms. Citrus, which sends me off to nationals for Ms. Citrus. After winning Ms. USA Petite, I was asked to be a judge in the Miss Orlando pageant. That was such a learning experience for me — it gave me a different perspective on pageants. I had so much fun watching the young ladies on the stage. I have taken so many valuable lessons with me from each pageant and I have had the opportunity to meet so many sweet girls.
