Since 2012, Mississippi Miss Amazing has been a point of light with statewide impact.
Mississippi Miss Amazing is a local chapter of Miss Amazing Inc, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization with chapters in over 30 states.
The mission of the Miss Amazing Organization is to provide opportunities for girls and young women with disabilities to build self-advocacy through the skills learned in aspects of pageantry in a supportive environment. The Miss Amazing Organization has donated around $50,000 and 1,000 pounds of food to community organizations across the nation.
The mission is now spreading nationwide and the more communities involved, the stronger Miss Amazing Inc. will become. The communities will inspire the organization’s design. The participants, volunteers, friends, family and community leaders will be the ones to shape Miss Amazing Inc. into something that truly highlights the abilities of those with disabilities.
At the official Mississippi Miss Amazing Organization, we strive to give these girls and young women a safe space where they can truly be themselves. We, the directors, want to encourage these women to show off their strengths, their unrestricted joy, and their incredible abilities. We shower all of our participants and their families with love because without these young girls, women, and their families our jobs would not be possible-- nor would they be as fun.
Nurture a Sisterhood
We offer a chance for women from different walks of life to learn from each other and develop a valuable support system.

We provide opportunities for girls and women with disabilities to test their boundaries and take on new challenges.
