A native of Amite, Tanya Crowe was crowned Miss Louisiana USA 2021 on 16 January 2021 and represented Louisiana at the Miss USA 2021 pageant in Tulsa, Oklahoma. She is a former captain of the New Orleans Saints Saintsation cheering squad and actively involved in her family’s 4th generation farming and agriculture businesses.
No stranger to the stage, Tanya began her modeling career with International Model & Talent Agency in Los Angeles. She has continued actively building her personal brand within the industry as a spokesmodel and runway/print ad model for numerous nationally and internationally branded companies. She currently has several national and international campaigns that air on major networks such as NBC, ABC, CBS, and Fox.
A graduate of Southeastern Louisiana University, Tanya earned a Bachelor of Business Administration with a concentration in International Business Studies. While at SLU, Tanya excelled as a Presidential Scholar and participated in several abroad programs that allowed her to study in Central America. Her abroad studies focused on international economic growth via renewable energy, medical resource, and technology development companies.
After graduation, she became a licensed cosmetologist and opened her own business, “Jo Tuklo Artistry.”
The on-stage moments, the tension of the final two and the glory of the crowning, here are Tanya’s state pageant photos.
Lights, camera, action! Professional photoshoots are one of the perks that comes from winning a title.
There’s nothing better than watching a contestant progress from year to year! Tanya competed six times before she won, making the top five three of those times, including finishing first runner-up in 2019.
All beautiful things must come to an end, no matter how bittersweet. See Tanya’s farewell walk and other candids from the weekend she crowned her successor KT Scannell as Miss Louisiana USA 2022.
Winning a state title is a sisterhood for life. Here are “after the crown” photos.
