    Inner Beauty Spotlight: Miss Montana 2013 Defeats the Odds to Pursue Her Dreams

    When Alexis Wineman was a child, she struggled with making friends. She spent hours alone and would have outbursts of anger and frustration. It was only later that she and her family would discover she had autism. Where did that revelation lead her? To the Miss America pageant!

    Wineman is under our inner beauty spotlight this week because her inner beauty far exceeds her physical beauty.

    Check out the following clip!

    This amazing woman defeated the odds. She didn’t allow the challenges of autism to stop her from pursuing her dreams!

    Ladies, do you find that you hold yourself back because you are dealing with a challenge?
