About Me
Megan Walker

I am just your average girl who happens to ride horses, play golf, raise grand champion hogs, football fanatic and sing in a band called Alien 2:12. None seem to connect, but it is who I am.

I was raised in St. Cloud where I learned that cooking trays could be boogie boards and falling off a horse made for interesting stories but had painful consequences.

Throughout middle school and high school I was active in 4-H. It is an agricultural group which name stands for head, heart, hands, and health. There I showed chickens, hedgehogs, modeled clothes I had made, woodworks, photos, hogs and horses. I love animals, but working with them does not mean it comes without a price.

By the time I reached high school, I had broken my arms and my nose, my face was bitten by a dog and a horse, and other unique injuries were added to the mix.

In high school I became heavily involved in singing and playing varsity golf. I was active all year long. The fall season was spent playing golf, the spring showing horses and choral competitions were year round. It was an understatement to say I was busy.

Outside of school I was a member of a praise band called Alien 2:12 that played for my church's middle school ministry. The name of the band was based on the verses from 1 Peter 2:11-12. Alien 2:12 did not play the typical praise music but incorporated popular music styles to maintain the attention of the hyper-active middle school kids.

On the opposite side of the spectrum, in 2004 and again in 2005 I participated in the Miss Silver Spurs Rodeo Pageant. I received the title of Miss Congeniality and was able to travel around Florida representing the rodeo with the big hair and wearing Wranglers.

I am now a student at the University of Florida majoring in public relations and filling my time cheering for my team. I no longer hold a title, show animals or sing in a band, but I still love to do those things.

One thing I still have is my Gator pride.
