An engaging memoir by Abbey Curran, former Miss Iowa USA, about living with cerebral palsy, competing in Miss USA, and starting her own pageant for young women with disabilities
Abbey Curran lives by the motto “If you can dream it, you can do it.” She was born with cerebral palsy, but early on she resolved to never let it limit her. Abbey made history when she became the first contestant with a disability to win a major beauty pageant. After earning the title of Miss Iowa, she went on to compete in Miss USA.
Growing up on a hog farm in Illinois, Abbey competed in local pageants despite naysayers who told her not to. After realizing her own dream, she went on to help other disabled girls achieve their goals by starting Miss You Can Do It, a national nonprofit pageant for girls and women with challenges and special needs.
In this uplifting memoir, Abbey tells a story of overcoming the odds, fulfilling her life’s goals, and finding in herself the courage to compete, even as she continues to inspire the same spirit in others. Download and start listening now!
