Miss Tampa 2019
Lauren Nielsen

Hi, I am Lauren: Music, Muscles, Mascara and Mindfulness! I am a uniquely created child of God who seeks to serve others while being a role model with a healthy body and mind. As an educator and motivational speaker, I seek to help instill confidence and self-worth in others. As a professional performer, I seek opportunities to shine vocally and theatrically. As a Miss Florida candidate, I pursue excellence through showcasing success, style, service, and scholarship. I am a strong, dedicated, passionate woman who champions the arts and an advocate who seeks to help people struggling with eating disorders.


I have been performing for the last 20 years. I have performed professionally throughout the state of Florida and currently hold the title of Miss Tampa. I started my social impact initiative called, Uniquely You, after overcoming an eating disorder. I volunteer at hospitals, treatment facility centers, schools, and organizations speaking on behalf of how to live a healthy and happy life and how to address signs and symptoms of eating disorders. I am able to teach people of all ages how to have overall wellness and be confident in who they are.

Uniquely You

Social Impact Initiative:

Overcoming eating disorders with a healthy body and mind. 

Eating disorders continue to affect people of all ages, genders and demographics. Every 62 minutes another life is lost to this disease. You are enough, you are worthy and your weight is not synonymous with your worth. To learn more about my recovery and seek help click on the Uniquely You tab above.
