And the winner is...
Ms. Wheelchair Kansas 2016
Miss. Tiffany Walter, 30, is a woman of faith who sees her disability as a gift from God. She uses this gift to show people that adversity can be overcome and that anything is possible. Tiffany, who has Spastic Quadriplegic Cerebral Palsy, knows that anything is possible, even when living with a disability. She attended Johnson County Community College where she received her Associates of Liberal Arts in 2007 and Emporia State University where she obtained her Bachelor of Science in Business with an emphasis in Accounting in 2011. Tiffany currently lives in Olathe and has worked as an accountant for her father’s business, Steve’s Handyman Services, for the past six and a half years. When not working, Tiffany is very involved in her church where she serves on the Missions Committee, helps plan women’s ministries, teaches a Bible Study, and does other volunteer duties. In the past, Tiffany has participated in Sunflower Girl’s State and is a graduate of the 2003 Kansas Youth Leadership Forum for Students with Disabilities. She was also in the top 10 percent of her high school graduating class and received the President’s Award. Tiffany describes herself as forgiven, a child of God, motivated, an overcomer, and free. She credits much of her success to God, but she also is thankful for her great support system—her family, friends, and church family! Tiffany is passionate about empowering others with disabilities to not let their disability define them, but rather celebrate it as a unique part of who they are!
