One of my other things I am involved with is an organization that helps woman in wheelchairs feel empowered. “The mission of Ms. Wheelchair America is to provide an opportunity of achievement for women who happen to be wheelchair users to successfully educate and advocate for the more than 54 million Americans living with disabilities. Unlike traditional beauty pageants, Ms. Wheelchair America is not a contest to select the most attractive individual. It is instead a competition based on advocacy, achievement, communication and presentation to select the most accomplished and articulate spokeswoman for persons with disabilities. The selected representative must be able to communicate both the needs and the accomplishments of her constituency to the general public, the business community and the legislature.’’. I was honored to be Ms. Wheelchair Colorado 2010 and I still cannot believe the judges choose me. But anyway now I run it in Colorado and I get to give other woman in wheelchairs the same experience and may be change their life; because I know it did for me. Ms. Wheelchair American is not about how you look but more about what you do with your disability and your community. I loved everything about my year, this group is not something you do once and then you forget about it; no it is people who can understand what it is like to be in a wheelchair and still want to have a life. Friends that I still talk to! Each March Ms. Wheelchair Colorado has a pageant to find a new Ms. Wheelchair, if you know anyone who is interested please let me know!

If we approach the hardships in our life with a great attitude and vulnerability to allow others around us inside our lives to help us in our times of need. Having friends to support you can help the way we handle ourselves through these challenges and can make a difference during those times. We all need help when times get hard. It's not what I went to school for, but I love helping others and inspiring people through my words. Thank you for supporting me. ♥ View all posts by L 4 love! Z’s Mentoring services.
