Miss America Pageant and Autism

When I came across this, I thought it was AWESOME and just had to feature this positive story here on my blog.

Alexis Wineman is Miss Montana and she has Autism. She will be competing for the Miss America crown. The show will air live  Saurday on ABC January 12, 2013 at 9pm ET in Las Vegas.

I normally do not watch the Miss America pageant, though this year I most likely will tune in because of Alexis. I am very interested to see her comedy talent routine.

Also Alexis needs your support- you can vote online for her through January 10th here at this link;  http://www.missamerica.org/videocontest/

When asked what she will do if she does not win the crown, Alexis will continue her public awareness speaking about Autism. What a special lady she is.

 

Good Luck to Alexis!  I think she is a beautiful inspiration  inside and out.

Autism is not just about deficits, it is also about positive ABILITIES.
