Miss Wheelchair Florida Runner-Up Role Model and Advocate

Laura-Lee Minutello was born with cerebral palsy. Her classmates probably never consider her beauty queen material.  She probably never thought of herself as beauty pageant material.

Now she is the runner-up for Miss Wheelchair Florida.  She was a reluctant advocate who did not want to be noticed or to stand out.

Now she is both an advocate and role model.  Congratulations for Laura-Lee we need more persons with disabilities to stand up and be heard.  She now has a platform to speak from and has not been shy about doing that.

Keep wheeling along and squeak those wheels when you have to.  You are beautiful.

Great story on Laura-Lee
