Miss Montana Doesn't Let Autism Define Her!

| Filed under: InspirationModelsMental Health

Alexis Wineman is one beautiful lady, so it's no surprise she won Miss Montana!

What is surprising is that she was diagnosed with a form of autism at 11!

She has pervasive development disorder and as a kid had trouble connecting with others socially.

It's a mild form of autism that mainly makes a kid quiet or socially awkward.

One day, she decided to change her life and not let her condition define her.

So she entered the Miss Montana pageant to prove she could do anything she wanted.

It's a truly amazing story!

Check out the video (above) to hear how she went from socially awkward to winning the America's Choice title in the Miss America competition!
