Autism Awareness Month Profile: Alexis Wineman

Alexis Wineman

Alexis was the first ever Miss America contestant that was known to be on the Autism Spectrum (pervasive development disorder) after winning Miss Montana in 2012.

She competed in pageants and contests around the country and at a high level, winning America’s Choice at the Miss America Pageant in 2013.

Today, the 23 year old continues to advocate for others on the Autism Spectrum, using her success to help motivate and inspire others to chase their dreams.

“Normal is just a dryer setting.”
