On June 10, 2013, the Miss Iowa pageant crowned Nicole Kelly, 23 year old, a University of Nebraska graduate. A native of Keokuk, Iowa, was born without a left forearm. Ms. Kelly said that she has gotten used to the stares that often come with her disability. "As I grew older, I learned to offset the initial stares I received from people with an outgoing personality that would not give in to "No." This meant that I tried everything! From baseball, to dance to diving, there was nothing I would not try. I found my passion within a world where I was giving people permission to stare…the stage." Kelly has also said that competing in pageants allows her to be comfortable with herself. “I found I could tell people it was acceptable to stare. It was the place that was kind of an outlet for me, a place I could stand up and be myself, and say here I am, and I’m confident in myself," she said. Please join us for her inspiring presentation on "The Power of One". This event is sponsored by SAC Leadership and is free to everyone.
