Congratulations to Jordan Taylor, Miss Tecumseh 2021

Miss Tecumseh 2021, Jordan Taylor

Jordan Taylor is a 21-year-old who was born and raised in Windsor, Ontario. She is a recent graduate of St. Clair College’s Business Accounting program and has recently transferred over to the University of Windsor to finish her Bachelor’s degree. After she receives her degree, she aspires to complete the CPA-PAS accreditation program at the University of Windsor. Jordan aspires to become a Chartered Professional Accountant and would like to further volunteer with local non-profits using her designation.

As Billie Jean King said, “When they take surveys of women in business, of the Fortune 500, the successful women, 80% of them, say they were in sports as a young woman.” Playing sports for over 13 years has helped shape her as a person, but it isn’t the sport itself. She strongly believes her teammates, her coaches, and families she has played and spent time with have also helped shape her as a person.

Coming from a single father family, Jordan is passionate about giving youth in her community a positive role model and furthering education. This is why she is adamant about volunteering. From her former high school’s dance program, to various local events, to mentoring our youth; She has done it all. If chosen as Miss Tecumseh, Jordan would like to partner with an organization very close to her heart; Big Brothers Big Sisters of Windsor Essex with a special focus on their mentoring program called Go Girls. Jordan has struggled with body image and self-esteem and would love to instill a positive attitude, strong character, and sense of self-esteem in all young children.

Without the positive mentorship of her own big sister and father, Jordan knows she wouldn’t be standing on the Miss Tecumseh stage. She is grateful to her family, friends, and community for giving her the chance to represent as Miss Tecumseh 2021.
