Bio: Dexonna Talbot grew up in Spanish Fork and is a sophomore at The University of Utah. She received early admittance to the ballet program and is working towards a degree in ballet performance. She has had many impressive opportunities through her ballet career including studying in Prague, making Top 12 at Youth America Grand Prix, and being invited to audition for “So You Think You Can Dance.” 

She has also spent countless hours on her social impact initiative, “Servesteem.” She believes that doing service – whether small acts or large coordinated projects – strengthens one’s own self-esteem. Earlier this year, one of her simple acts went viral and she was invited to share her experience on “The Steve Harvey Show.” She is excited to continue spreading her message to the state of Utah and compete for the title of Miss America 2020.
