For the second year in a row, Lily Goodfellow was a part of the Miss Amazing competition. The pageant-style event lets women and girls with disabilities share their passions with the world, for a chance to be awarded the title of “Miss Amazing” through several different categories.
The even was held virtually this year due to the pandemic, so Lily’s family was watching from home when they heard the title of Illinois Miss Amazing Teen go to Lily.
“You’re selected to represent your state based on your own individual abilities, and I think that’s what I love is just the stress on every single person has their own abilities. So for these young women to be able to showcase that, in an environment that’s all inclusive, accepting and celebratory is a really fantastic thing,” said Nancy Goodfellow, Lily’s mom.
