Tamika Vantifflin to Run for Miss Michigan USA

Tamika Vantifflin, 22 was born in San Antonio Texas and currently resides in Lansing Michigan. Despite her challenges of being adopted at age three she maintains an obvious love for children and passion for empowerment of all people.

Tamika has proven this by dedicating many summers as a counselor at Bayshore Christian Camp in Sebewaing MI. She desires to be a woman of inspiration to encourage children to pursue success no matter their past or present situation.

Vantifflin developed a love for music and dance at an early age and has continued to study dance for over 10 years. She is formally trained in tap, jazz, ballet, jazz and hip-hop and loves to dance in her free time.

Tamika Vantiffin is competing for the title of Miss Michigan USA on September 23-24th in Port Huron Michigan

Tamika has been competing in pageants since 2013. She has competed in Miss Michigan USA 2014, 2015 and Miss Michigan Amazing in 2014. Tamika entered her first competition for the fun of it. She was initially interested in modeling and entered the Miss Michigan USA pageant in hopes it would give her a leg up with her modeling career. She was selected as a contestant and was introduced to a whole new world which she instantly loved after being introduced to the world of pageantry. She describes herself as a non-traditional pageant girl that is very down to earth with a passion for sports (Soccer in particular)

Currently Tamika attends Lansing Community College Majoring in Fashion Merchandising and Marketing and plans on attending Michigan State University in the Fall of 2017. She plans to continue her education after obtaining her Bachelor’s degree from Michigan. Tamika loves fashion and desires work in the fashion industry and later start her own clothing line.

Tamika is inspired by the beauty in others and helping those around her. This has helped her to find herself and make a change for the better with the passing of each day. She is dedicated to fitness and maintaining a healthy lifestyle year round. She values time spent with friends and family and will stop at nothing to reach her dreams and becoming the woman she wants to be.
