I am from Forest, Mississippi with a 5 year old daughter. I use to be a LPN, but after getting Covid-19 in July 2020, my disease progression has gotten worse. I help take care of my mother, unless she's taking care of me. On a good day, I enjoy sewing and cooking. I feel very blessed and honored to be a part of Mississippi Plus America pageant competing with an amazing group of Queens.
WHY I CHOSE MY PLATFORM
I chose to participate in MSPA to prove to myself, my daughter, and other plus size young women that we are just as beautiful inside and out and worthy of a crown as well. My platform is Dercum's Disease because after getting the diagnosis personally, I found what it's truly like to go to doctor after doctor and be looked at as just fat. Losing weight doesn't make the disease go away. As with other health issues, many doctors will tell you "you need to lose weight," which is not always the solution.
Thanks in advance for your encouraging words AND Support!
