My name is Shai Forman and I am delighted to be the 2019-2020 Miss Teen Rodeo Arizona. For the past 15 years, I have called the beautiful town of Prescott home. I am a senior in high school with plans to become a veterinarian. I am an avid barrel racer and pole bender. As of last year, I took up mountain biking, and am currently my school’s team captain! Some of my favorite things to do include baking, arts and crafts, and most importantly being with my cat Nugget and my loving friends and family.
Becoming a state queen has been my dream for as long as I can remember! I vividly recall being at a rodeo when I was a lot younger, and seeing this beautiful, graceful, and kind rodeo queen in the arena representing her state. I knew that this was who I wanted to become and what I wanted to achieve. Now I get to represent the sport of rodeo and be a role model for future queens all while doing the thing I love!
My path to becoming Miss Teen Rodeo Arizona would not have been possible without my supportive family and friends. This experience upon being crowned Miss Teen Rodeo Arizona was something so surreal that words cannot begin to describe. August 17, 2019 was filled with surprise, happiness, and gratitude. My most memorable part of all was winning horsemanship because my role model, a former Miss Turquoise Circuit and former Miss Rodeo New Mexico, told me at a young age, “There is a reason why rodeo comes before queen.” That is a motto I have chosen to live by.
These experiences and achievements that I am blessed to have, truly have shown me that in life, it is not about the destination, but instead the hard work and the noble journey in which it took to get here.
With this title, I want to inspire young girls to go after their dreams and conquer every obstacle. I am beyond excited to be traveling the Grand Canyon State, attending rodeos, making appearances, and adding to my rodeo family along the way!
I cannot wait to meet you at the next rodeo!
