Tatyana Samone Drake, Miss Forsyth County USA, will be running for Miss North Carolina in the Miss North Carolina USA Pageant on Jan. 28-29 at the High Point Theater in High Point. 

Tatyana was just two years old, watching TV with her parents, when she boldly told them, “I wanna be on TV!” A young girl’s dream immediately pursued, as they began entering her into pageants. Years later, Tatyana began expanding her work through modeling, dancing, and cheerleading. She found an additional love for teaching and an interest in traveling the world at a young age. As Tatyana entered college, she decided to not go the traditional route, and took her career to the next level by earning a scholarship to pursue a degree at The New York Conservatory for Dramatic Arts.

Like any hustling artist in New York does after graduating, she got a job and pursued her lifelong dream – her acting career – even premiering in short/student films and creative projects. Early on, she landed her first supporting role on the TV series, ” Homicide Hunters,” as well as starred in several online commercials. Tatyana has recently been booked on a Los Angeles TV pilot that should be premiering soon.

In transition from New York City back to N.C., Tatyana realized that while waiting for her “big shot,” she could and should be giving back to the community. In 2018, she fell in love with teaching kids dance and theater, babysitting, and tutoring. Additionally, she supports her family’s group home, where they take care of people with mental health disabilities. All these experiences have allowed Tatyana to have a very diverse interpersonal perspective, which she believes allows her to connect and understand people in all walks of life. She anticipates that these experiences will benefit her supporting role on TV series ” Homicide Hunters” and further opportunities to shine on stage.
Encouraged by friends and bored during quarantine, Tatyana started making Tik Toks. Her online success was propelled by embracing her curves and showcasing her uplifting personality. She quickly accumulated 130k followers on her platform and her audience/voice is only getting bigger. Throughout her life, Tatyana’s purpose and mission has always been to be that “bold” voice for herself and others that look like her. She is confident that with her continued efforts through her various platforms, as well as the help of The Miss USA Organization, she can use that voice to inspire women all around the world to love themselves.

If you would like to support Tatyana, you can vote for her for the “People’s Choice Award.” Voting is permitted through the Miss North Carolina USA website,, for $1 per vote. You can vote as many times as you like, or for your convenience, you can send the money by Cash App, Venmo or PayPal  to $missnctatyana.
