Miss Montana Alexis Wineman is the first autistic contestant to participate in the Miss America pageant.
At 18, she will also be this year’s youngest contestant.
She told Fox she was diagnosed at the age of 11.

Wineman is said to have “very mild symptoms,” that cause her struggles to communicate. She also said she often takes things too literally.

“We cannot cure what is not a sickness,” Miss Montana says in the video. “But we can begin to understand autism, and help those with the condition to unlock the potential that lies within all of us.”
