My little Amaya Papaya has Apraxia of Speech, along with 3 other siblings, as this is a neurological speech disorder. She was mute at age 4, and at age 6 she was competing at IJM in Nashville for CO and gave a 45 second speech!!! She is my inspiration to compete!! I want to inspire all little girls, especially my own, that you can do hard things and rise above! I lost over 70 lbs to compete and I can do hard things!
Served a 19 month mission for my church. Can still do the splits! Shortest in my family. Expert squaw wrestler. Broke a wild Mustang at age 9. Wrote and illustrated 2 children’s books. Traveled to 15 countries and counting: swimming with dolphins most memorable. Won Miss Congeniality and Miss Photogenic.
