Alexis Wineman -current Miss Montana- will make history of Miss America Competition since she is the first autistic girl to take part to the contest. The 18 year old girl told Fox that she was diagnosed autism when she was 11: “For the longest time I just really wanted to know what was wrong with me,” she said. “When I was finally diagnosed I felt like it came too late.” Although she declared to suffer “very mild symptoms.” she still sometimes has problems of communication and also said to take things too literally: “I try my best to overcome that,” “It’s a part of who I am.” In the video for the contest she said that she hopes to go forward to give informations about autism: "Most people do not understand what autism is," "And one in 88 people having some form of autism -- this understanding is becoming more and more necessary." "We cannot cure what is not a sickness," "But we can begin to understand autism, and help those with the condition to unlock the potential that lies within all of us."
