Stephanee Amazes in Chicago
Posted on: September 12, 2017 | Posted by: Andy Turner
With the spotlight calling in Chicago for the National Miss Amazing pageant, Stephanee Corcoran spent June and July in preparation for the big event.
She won Missouri’s Miss Amazing Senior Division last November to qualify for the national event, which event organizers say provides “opportunities for girls and women with disabilities to build confidence and self-esteem in a supportive environment.”
Stephanee, who Bethesda supports in St. Peters, Missouri, danced to “Honey, I’m Good” by Andy Grammer during the talent portion of the pageant, which was held Aug. 5-7 at the Grand Ballroom of the Hyatt Regency O’Hare.
She was not selected as a national queen, but the crowning was still Stephanee’s favorite part.
“I was nervous but excited,” she says. “I didn’t know if I was going to win, but I couldn’t wait to find out.”
Stephanee says she would gladly participate in the event again.
“All of the preparing, planning and nervousness were worth it,” she says.
