Mallory Allen

Miss Lake Okeechobee USA 2012

Mallory was born in Fort Myers, where she was very close to her family. The hardest thing she has done is to leave her family to go away to college.

She is studying Biomedical Engineering at Florida Gulf Coast University with a minor in Marketing. "I hope to work for a major corporation making prosthetics," she said.

Mallory has been a dance student for 18 years. She enjoys opera and Broadway musicals.

Her idea of success is to, "not look back and regret." She also believes that a title holder should carry herself with respect and dignity throughout life.

**Funny anecdote: While dancing Jazz at a local festival, Mallory fell off the back of the stage.
