From 1st to 7th grade, Boyce attended The Kings Academy in Florence, South Carolina. She later transferred to public school. She won the title of Miss South Carolina on July 2, 2011, when she received her crown from outgoing titleholder Desiree Puglia. Boyce's platform is "Eating Healthy and Fighting Obesity." At age 17, Boyce weighed 234 lbs. Her doctor diagnosed her excessive weight as the source of her knee problems, and warned that she would have more health problems in the future unless she lost weight. Through healthy eating and exercise, Boyce lost 112 lbs. over a period of three years, and began competing in beauty pageants. After winning the title of Miss South Carolina, Boyce became the focus of extensive media attention, and was featured on The Today Show, Good Morning America, The View, and Inside Edition.
