What a competition it was tonight in Anaheim, California. Twenty-six women aged 26 years old and older from all around the country were vying for the title of Ms America 2011. The ladies competed in evening gown, sportswear, interview and on stage question. All of the lady's were beautiful, accomplished and very well spoken. Having been a runner-up twice in this pageant I know first hand the caliber of ladies that compete for this title and they are definitely top notch all the way around. This year the victory was claimed by pageant veteran Tracy Broughton. Tracey has an incredible story to tell about how she has survived 2 horrific car accidents that left her confined to a wheelchair. After being told she would never walk again, she beat the odds and is walking again for the first time in 11 years. Like me she is also a single mother and she is also a business owner. What an incredible inspirational woman. Congratulations and my hat is off to you Tracey and all of the incredible contestants at the Ms America pageant!
