2024 Girl of the Year

Our 2024 TCM Girl of the Year, Sophie Cruze, is the 20-year-old daughter of Tammy & Stacy. Originally from Gretna, Sophie has just embarked on Miami for cosmetology school, with a focus on theatrical makeup. Sophie loves gardening, traveling, snuggling with her cat, Mittens, and of course pageants. Sophie has been part of the TCM family for eight years and has traveled the country competing in various systems: Teen Earth USA, Princess of America, United World, ANTSO, America's Majestic Miss, International Miss, High School America, Miss America's Outstanding Teen program, and more! In April 2023, Sophie traveled to Chicago to compete in the teen division at Outstanding American Miss. She won the National Modeling title for the Sr. Division AND her first national title: Outstanding American Miss National Teen! The following month, she traveled to Denver to compete in International Miss taking home 2RU!

We are so proud of Sophie's journey and excited to name her Girl of the Year! She receives a $500 cash scholarship for school, a subscription to Pageantry Magazine, TCM apparel, luggage and various travel bags, TCM personalized stationery, pens, and notepads. She also received the official TCM custom crown and crown pin along with the sponsored TCM Girl of the Year sash and sash bag, compliments of Jamie Hinson with SisterQueens. Raising Cane's also donated a gift basket full of goodies, gift cards, and Raising Cane's swag for her efforts in volunteerism throughout her community.

Sophie's personal platform is The Ripple Effect where she inspires others to do random acts of kindness to spread positivity. She has also volunteered with Grace at the Green Light, glass recycling projects of New Orleans, food banks and pantries, CAAWS Krewe of Mutts parade, St. Jude's, and so much more. She has volunteered thousands of hours of service over the years and still has much more planned.

In April of 2024, Sophie will crown her successor at Oustanding American Miss and we anxiously await her return to the pageant stage! Congratulations, Sophie!
