Dear Miss Amazing participants,
I am so excited to welcome you all to the Iowa Miss Amazing family! My name is Morgan Tooley, and I am the State Director. I have been involved with Miss Amazing, Inc. for over 5 years now, and I had the incredible opportunity to join the staff of the Iowa organization in 2014! The Iowa program has had over 150 girls and women from all over the state participate, and we hope for the numbers to grow and grow!
Miss Amazing goes beyond the pageant itself. It's an opportunity to for girls and women with disabilities to share their strengths and abilities while making new friendships in a supportive and fun environment! The mission is to offer women from all different walks of life with the opportunity to learn from one another, step out of their comfort zone, and let their individuality shine through. Through my experience, I have seen both participants and volunteers grow, develop lifelong friendships, and see themselves in a whole new, positive light... all just within the day! These experiences and memories, however, are ones that will stay with individuals for a lifetime.
With each passing year, as the assistant state director, and I have learned more than I ever thought possible. With every mishap and successful venture while planning, I come one step closer to the final vision—providing the participants, volunteers, and families with a day they will never forget, full of excitement, encouragement, and memories. The day is all about the participants and a celebration of their abilities! In 2019, I hope that you, too, can experience the AMAZING impact of this organization!
