Ms. Wheelchair America, Jennifer Adams, made a special appearance at Lee High School on Tuesday.
Adams shared her inspirational story with over three hundred students. Adams stressed the importance of recognizing that everyone is able to achieve great things. Ms. Wheelchair America was joined on stage by Ms. Wheelchair Alabama, Paula Montgomery Rodney, who lives in Huntsville.
Adams was born with partial limbs, but she considers the struggles she’s had to face a gift. Adams was crowned Ms. Wheelchair Washington earlier this year, and is now the reigning Ms. Wheelchair America 2014.
Ms. Wheelchair America aims to provide contestants with the opportunity to educate and advocate for millions of Americans living with disabilities. The reigning Ms. Wheelchair America must promote awareness of the need to eliminate physical and social barriers and showcase the many accomplishments of people with disabilities.
