Back in September, the limb-different community tuned in to the Miss America pageant to see if Miss Iowa, Nicole Kelly, would win.
She didn’t win, but following her path to the pageant was fun and seeing her on TV, just like millions of others did, made us proud.
I’m honored to share with you an interview I did recently with Nikki! In it, she shares her path to Miss America, her thoughts on dealing with differences and interacting with others, and more. We had a really fun time and I’m excited to hear your thoughts about it!

As promised in the podcast, here are Nikki’s answers to 10 Random Questions:
What’s your favorite sport to play? I love to dance! I was a dance minor in college.
What’s your favorite candy/candy bar? TWIX!!!! I would eat one everyday if I had the money to invest!

What band/artist are you listening to right now? I am currently watching Dirty Dancing…so I have some Franky Valli playing within the background of the movie.

If you could be an animal, which would you be and why? A cat. Only ever sleeping and eating sounds like a plan to me.
Which super power would you want and why: Flight or invisibility? Flight!!!!!! As Miss Iowa I am constantly traveling so it would be convenient to be able to quickly fly to my destinations
