Meet Kamryn

“Having started in the organization eight years ago as a Carolina Star, and now as a Teen, I can’t wait to empower teens across the state as well as the next generation of Stars. I have a story, and I am ready to share it.””


Kamryn Hollowell

Miss North Carolina's Teen 2024

On June 29, 2024, Kamryn Hollowell was crowned the 20th Miss North Carolina’s Teen by Miss North Carolina’s Teen 2023, Annika Schneider. Hollowell, who has been involved in the Miss America Opportunity since she was 8 years old, will later go on to compete for the title of Miss America’s Teen 2025.

When Kamryn was 9 years old, she decided to start advocating for IBD in support of her mother, who had been diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis. Kamryn had seen the numerous doctor and hospital visits that accompanied this diagnosis, and knew she had to find ways to lessen the impact on other families. Since then, Hollowell has raised funds and increased awareness through her Project Purple initiative. She has been able to partner with the Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation – Carolinas Chapter, raise over $5,000 for further research and treatment of IBD, speak with legislators on Capitol Hill on multiple trips, and spoken with North Carolina Representatives about her strategy.

Project Purple: Advocating for Crohn's Disease and Ulcerative Colitis

I started my Community Service Initiative at the age of 9 after seeing how much my mother had gone through since being diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis. Over the years I have raised over $5,000 for the Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation of America for research and funding of these diseases. I plan to visit Elementary schools to teach students that being kind is free and can always have an impact on those around you.
