McKinzie Deaton is a Junior studying Accounting at the University of Oklahoma, where She hopes to graduate with a Master’s degree. She has many passions, ranging from performing, to distance running, to all things Disney. However, her greatest passion is using her voice, whether it be spoken or sung, to address important issues. As a young woman recovering from Anorexia and Bulimia Nervosa, She has decided to dedicate her year of service as Miss Piedmont to breaking stigmas and opening up conversation surrounding disordered eating through her platform, Table Talk. She will continue to be a voice for an illness characterized by silence, and hopes to show other affected individuals that recovery is possible, and that they are never alone.
