2021 bio:

Madison Bryant, Miss North Carolina USA 2021 is a native of Fayetteville, NC. She has a passion for service and dedicates her free time to advocating for the families of sick children through the Ronald McDonald House Charities and the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals nationally.

Madison is a proud graduate of the University of North Carolina at Charlotte where she earned a neuro-specific psychology degree. She is currently an accelerated student at Chamberlain University where she is earning her Doctor of Nursing Practice degree. Her ultimate goal is to be a Nurse Practitioner in a Children’s Miracle Network Hospital!

After hearing her name called as the new Miss NC USA 2021, Madison’s first words were “walking on water”, a mantra of hers that comes from the Bible. This year she has big plans that will require a lot of hard work, dedication, and faith to accomplish.

As Miss North Carolina USA, Madison plans to travel the nation speaking on behalf of Healthcare worker burnout prevention, advocating for the Ronald McDonald House Charities, building a scholarship program for the Miss North Carolina USA pageant, and serving the state of North Carolina with every opportunity she gets!
She is the daughter of Michael Bryant and Dawn Bryant and is the youngest of four children. She is thankful that she was raised by a family that values their Christian faith and that taught her how to trust in the path that God has perfectly planned for her!
