We have just heard about Alexis Wineman, an extraordinary young woman competing this weekend in the Miss America pageant. Check out her interview with Fox news.
Alexis was diagnosed with autism at age 11, and this year at age 18 is representing Montana as the youngest pageant contestant ever.
Her slogan? “Normal is just a dryer setting.” I want it on a bumpersticker.
Could this be any more a sign mainstream of inclusion in the U.S.?
Good luck, Alexis– and thanks.
