Description
Our Mission

Miss Amazing provides opportunities for girls and women with disabilities to build confidence and self-esteem in a supportive environment.

Breaking Down Barriers

Research shows that girls and women with disabilities regularly face a harmful “double-dose” of stereotypes associated with two parts of their identity: being female and having a disability.

 

As a result of these widely held myths about their value, the self-esteem of girls and women with disabilities remains significantly lower than that of girls and women without disabilities, and our communities miss out on the contributions that girls and women with disabilities are fully capable of offering.

 

Miss Amazing wants to change that.

We offer a chance for women from different walks of life to learn from each other and develop a valuable support system.

We provide opportunities for girls and women with disabilities to test their boundaries and take on new challenges.

We provide a public platform for girls and women with disabilities to define themselves on their own terms and dispel stereotypes.

Full-Day Volunteer

If you are available for the entire duration of your event, you’ll be named a Miss Amazing Buddy. As a Buddy, you’ll be paired up with a participant and act as her official Miss Amazing guide. Even more, she could turn out to be one of your most supportive lifelong friends.

Half-Day Volunteer

Miss Amazing is brought to life by volunteers that hop in to help with behind- the-scenes odds and ends. Tell us about your interests and availability in the application and we’ll find the perfect position for you!

Right-hand Men

Calling all helpful and supportive gentlemen! The objective of the Right-Hand Man program is to give boys and men with and without disabilities the opportunity to take centerstage as a volunteer at the Miss Amazing Pageant. Right-hand Men are responsible for accompanying and supporting the participants as they present themselves in their evening wear.
