Alex is a great ambassador for people with Autism who give life a go! It is such a great opportunity for people to see Alexis as a Miss America contestant as she breaks down the misconceptions of disability and Autism.

Alex shows that a label doesn’t define who you are as a person. You can still aim high and achieve!

Nothing is impossible regardless of what your disability is.
