She participates in Break the Barriers, a local nonprofit that promotes inclusion via dance, gymnastics, martial arts and other programs. She is a dancer, an archer, and her love of animals led her family to become a foster home for kittens.

Tyra on going to the USA Games:

“Getting selected to the USA Games makes me feel happy and excited. I’m excited to go to Florida and hopefully see some pro athletes, and USA Games Celebrity hosts, at the ESPN complex.”
