Ms. Wheelchair America Fundraiser

$3,417 of $4,000 goal

Raised by 26 people in 59 months
This year, I ran for and won Ms. Wheelchair North Carolina in order to participate more actively in disability advocacy. Now, I am running for Ms. Wheelchair America! The organization encourages candidates to raise money for their application fee, which is $1385 plus their travel expenses for themselves and a campanion, in order to show that they are capable of raising money. Please help me in reaching this goal, so I can be the next Ms Wheelchair America and impact even more lives.





My platform is as follows:
Women with disabilities are beautiful too. We are not asexual beings, as society has presumed throughout history. We have careers and success, while also wearing couture and 5" Jimmy Choo heals. No matter how our bodies are formed, we are all still God's creations, and, thus, we, too, are beautiful and desire to be seen as such. This beauty and normalcy should be portrayed more accurately in television and film. The disabled community makes up 10% of America's population, and, yet, we are rarely represented in the media. And, when we are represented in the media, we are inaccurately played by able-bodied actors. We should no longer be hidden. Rather, our beauty should be introduced to America through realistic portrayals of beauty within the disabled community.

Help me prove that a disabled woman can still be beautiful, successful and true to herself

A much better investment (though equally as hopeful) than the last time around. Better late than never! So happy to see you back on track - kicking, screaming, and most importantly smiling.
