Collins Tuohy, we all are familiar with this name, of course.
Apart from her gorgeous eyes and lush brown hair that speed up many heartbeats, Collins Tuohy is dearly loved and looked up to because of the adorable and loving bond she shares with her adopted brother, Michael Oher.
For those of you who do not know, Oher is well-known and followed American Football Player. Apart from making a noticeable name in NFL, the player is known because of the movie ‘The Blind Side’ which was filmed on Oher’s life and struggles he faced in his early life. He was born in Memphis, Tennessee in 1986 to an underprivileged family where his parents didn’t provide him enough economic and emotional support majorly because he had 11 other siblings, and they couldn’t provide them enough food to eat. His father spent most of his days in jail, and his mother was a drug addict.
He had to change many schools in his initial life because he spent a major chunk of his childhood in foster homes.
Missing the kindness and attention from parents that every child craves, he could not have a stable life. His studies and grades fluctuated greatly.
When he reached high school, his life took a major turn. His father was murdered, and he met the beautiful Collins Tuohy.
Quickly after knowing each other, they started to share a unique bond. She knew Oher’s story and was very sympathetic and kind towards him. He was not used to such humble attitude and quickly started to see Collins as a family.
Soon after, Collins mother Miss Leigh Anne Touhy who is an interior designer by profession adopted Oher as her son.
Sean and Leigh Tuohy were given all the custody by law and were declared Michael Oher’s legal guardians.
Due to massive love from Tuohy’s and major support from his sister Collins Tuohy, Oher started to excel at school.
Not just in academics, he started to show out of this world performance in football. Due to his exceptional skills and performance, he was handpicked by NLA where he gained massive fame and global outreach as a wildly followed footballing figure.
Apart for being such an inspirational figure in Oher’s life, Collins is an excellent actress. She then played role of daughter in a movie ‘The Blind Side’ (previously mentioned that it depicted Oher’s life). The movie was loved and even made it to Oscars. I know, huge!
She is a woman of many talents. Along with being an adorable person and talented woman on-screen, she also has a bachelor’s degree in Broadcast Journalism from the prestigious University of Mississippi. She was also active in university societies and also served as the President of the Student Alumni Council.
Wait, there is more to come! She is also an Officer for the Kappa Delta Sorority and a Cheerleader for Ole Miss Varsity.
She is also on the board of The Making It Happen Foundation as she is very passionate about Philanthropic work as well.
She is also the Director of Sales and Marketing & Co-Owner Whimsy Cookie Co, a delicious cookie company.
Every aspect of Collins’ personality is beautiful and loveable; this is what makes her so loved in public.
