Miss Land O Lakes

Eliza Smith

Eliza Smith is a 15-year-old student at Land O’ Lakes High School. She holds a GPA of a 4.6, taking numerous AP and Honors classes and will be dual-enrolled at Pasco-Hernando State College this upcoming fall. She holds the title of Miss Land O’ Lakes Teen USA and will be competing for Miss Florida Teen USA this July. She uses her title to promote her platform Be Bold Be Beautiful Be You – which is a soon to be nonprofit organization that aims to educate society about the ongoing mental health crisis in our country , as well as, bring attention to special needs inclusion and encourage others to be 100% themselves. Not only that, but she also volunteers for three other non-profit organizations including Network to end hunger, Theatre Exceptional and NAMI Pasco. Eliza hopes to one day attend Duke University, entering into the medical program to pursue a career in therapy. Her openness, kindness and compassion allows her to build strong relationships with those around her. She loves helping others, giving back to her community and finding opportunities that allow her to prosper as an individual.
