I am 24 years old and starting doing pageants my junior year of high school. When I was a senior I was involved in a car accident that left me paralyzed and in a wheelchair. I decided then that I wasn’t going to the wheelchair become me and that it wasn’t going to stop me from achieving my goals. In 2014, I competed in the Ms. Wheelchair USA pageant as Ms. Wheelchair WV USA. It was important for me to show girls all across America that you don’t have to look a certain way to be beautiful and to embrace their differences because that’s what makes the world beautiful! I love inspiring girls and men of all ages to embrace those differences because it’s the uniqueness of an individual that takes people’s breath away. Beauty is confidence. We all have confidence therefore we all are beautiful we just have to let the confidence shine through! I am currently National Miss WV 2018 and will compete July 2018 for the national title!
