About Angela Young
Angela Young of Williamston, SC, was named Ms. Wheelchair South Carolina 2019 on January 6.
Young will serve as South Carolina’s state titleholder and Independent Delegate for one year. She will prepare to represent the state of South Carolina and compete in the Ms. Wheelchair America 2019 competition in Little Rock, Arkansas, on July 1 – July 7, 2019.
The Ms. Wheelchair South Carolina and Ms. Wheelchair America pageants do not judge beauty. Instead, the Ms. Wheelchair South Carolina and Ms. Wheelchair America organizations focus on recognizing the free spirits, abilities, and accomplishments of women who use wheelchairs.
Throughout her reign, Young will serve as a spokeswoman throughout the state where she can discuss awareness, acceptance and the overall understanding of disabilities with the general public. She will have the opportunity to travel across the state, visit advocacy groups, make public appearances, including possible parade appearances, and is available to conduct interviews.
She will also use her year as Ms. Wheelchair South Carolina 2019 to share her platform, “Disability Odyssey: A Voyage of Change: Elevating change in employment and Community integration to a one size fits all standard.” With her platform, Young plans to educate others about the importance of inclusion in the community and employing people with all different types of abilities. She also hopes to encourage others to always pursue their passions.
Young uses a wheelchair for mobility because she has spina bifida. However, she does not let her circumstances stop her. She lives life to the fullest and aims to shine a positive light on disabilities. Through advocacy and education, she sets an example for other individuals who also use wheelchairs for mobility.
Young remains active in her community and the surrounding area in several different capacities. She is currently employed as a Mental Health Professional. She has also previously served as Independent Living Specialist at Able South Carolina. In her spare time, Young enjoys singing, watching the University of South Carolina Gamecocks and Atlanta Braves, attending concerts with her husband, playing trivia at local venues, and spending time with family and friends.
She has learned to embrace the challenges in her life and will use her new title as a way to continue to raise awareness about disabilities. She is excited about her reign and is available for appearances.
