2023 MYC PRINCESS HAILEY TATE
My name is Hailey Tate and I have the privilege of representing Maryland Yacht Club as the 2022-23 princess and the 2021-22 junior princess. I have been heavily involved with my club ever since I was little. I enjoy going to Maryland Yacht Club every weekend during the summer to fish and to spend time with my family. At the Maryland Yacht Club, I have been a part of the Jr. Sailing Camp by raising money with different events along with attending the camp when I was young. I have hosted a few bingos, face painting event, and a hot chocolate stand to raise money for my charity.
I am finishing my junior year at Glenelg Country School in Ellicott City and plan to attend St. Mary’s School in Annapolis for my senior year. In school, my electives include sculpture and pottery II, where my art has been displayed at my school. I enjoy art very much because I find it to be relaxing and a good way for me to express myself. Over the past three years I have been a part of robotics, photography, health, and wellness club, art club, knitting and crochet club. My school has also hosted a blood drive where I donated blood for the first time. I also have been a part of Track and Field through my school in Sophomore year. Due to my steady 3.0 GPA, I have been selected to be a part of the National Society of High School Scholars. I have been awarded honor roll and efforts honors throughout my academic career.
Outside of school, I have volunteered my time to Linda’s Legacy which is geared towards helping the homeless. Some of the things I did included helping pack backpacks filled with warm clothes and toiletries. I have also volunteered at a Believe In Tomorrow benefit auction which raised tens of thousands of dollars for children suffering from horrible illnesses and diseases. Over the summer I volunteered to host a snowball stand in downtown Ellicott City alongside my cousin to raise money for three different charities including Howard County Animal Shelter, Trevor Project, and Ellicott City Partnership youth events. I have been featured on Primitive Beginning’s website modeling the latest spring and fall collection of clothing and accessories. I am also a member of Sea Scouts which is an organization focusing on teaching boating skills, marine heritage, and water safety.
I have also achieved 1st degree Black Belt in Tae Kwon Do where I learned how to protect myself in bad circumstances. Being a part of Tae Kwon Do also has taught me about some of the most important life lessons including discipline and respect.
