My Story

Hello, everyone! I am Avalon Jade Theisen, your Miss University of South Florida 2019!

If you know me, you know that service and philanthropy are a huge part of who I am, as I have felt a strong calling to service of others and planet since I was a small child. You also probably know that being Miss University of South Florida is a position I love and value - I bleed green and gold and am a proud Bull! What you may not know is that through this title, I have the honor of being involved with the Miss America Organization. One of the exciting opportunities this organization offers is the chance to raise funds for local children's hospitals through Children's Miracle Network Hospitals. The money I raise will help save children's lives, and a portion will also go to support the Miss America Scholarship Fund.

Children's Miracle Network Hospitals makes sure that donated funds stay local which means that your donation helps kids and families right here in our community. I invite you to join me in touching the lives of sick and injured children today, by clicking the "Donate Now" button to make a secure donation. You can also see the impact of your donation by clicking here to view some of the incredible miracle stories from kids we've helped. These are just a few stories out of millions of kids treated at Children's Miracle Network Hospitals each year.
