My name is Stephanie Sharp, I‘m from Owensboro, Kentucky. I recently graduated Magna Cum Laude from Murray State University in May with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Public Relations, with a minor in Political Science. While attending Murray State, I served as Vice President of the Public Relations Student Society of America and was an active member of the American Advertising Federation. I think being a part of these organizations, has given me the opportunity to gain valuable experience as a public speaker, which helped me become a better representative for individuals with disabilities in Kentucky. Not only did I gain a valuable education during college, but I also was given opportunities to advocate for the rights of students with physical and learning disabilities on campus and within the local community. These experiences are what inspired me to become a contestant in the Miss Wheelchair Kentucky Pageant.
