Growing up the only girl in the house with all brothers in a small beach town, our new Miss American Teen 2019 is a typical Florida girl. She loved swimming, days spent at the beach, being captain of her competitive cheer team for her high school and being physically active. A recent high school honors graduate, Daegan is now actively managing the demands of attending college and pursuing her dream career as a model. Her heart is never far though from her personal mission of protecting our beaches and making them clean and safe for everyone, including sea life. She lends her time and makes appearances on behalf of clean beach campaigns. As a future leader of her generation, Daegan looks forward to making an impact in both the environmental and medical fields in the future.
