And finally... My Ms. Wheelchair America update! I apologize for the delay. I did alot of work to prepare for this one of a kind experience. It was an experience that I would not trade for the world! Although I did not win a new title, I am still Ms. Wheelchair Washington for a few more months. I had a chance to learn more about the advocacy programs and organizations in my community that have the same passion and desires as myself for people living with disabilities. Before I won the title of Ms. Wheelchair Washington I had mainly men as friends. I did not realize what I was missing out on! I now have a number of, not only girlfriends to hang out and have fun with, but women wheelers who I know are there for me through anything that goes on in life. Although I have been blessed with my title, I have had some heart breaking things happen since winning the title. The Ms. Wheelchair Washington program has been there to support me through it all. Now that I have participated in the Ms. Wheelchair America Pageant as a representative for Washington state, I can honestly say I have more support and friendship than ever before from women who have been through the same things and are still pushing forward. I definitely am grateful that I have had the opportunity to win the friendshipsof all the wonderful women who are living with the goal of making an impact in today's community. Thank you Lord, for directing these women into my life to help me continue living the calling you have ordained for me!
