Meet the New Ms America: Tracy Broughton

After being abducted as a small girl, losing her mother to cancer and spending over a decade in a wheelchair, Tracy Broughton has had a life crammed with adversity.

She’s been paralysed and wheelchair-bound twice and has raised twin boys as a single mother while also modelling, working with charities and running a legal aid business.

But the 36-year-old’s incredible resolve and determination has now been officially recognised with the award of the Ms America 2011 title.

A big sister of sorts to the Miss America pageant, entrants in the Ms America competition are all 26 and above and have no restrictions on their marital status.

The pageant’s mission statement is to ‘empower women across the nation and around the world’ and now Ms Broughton has been selected as the latest woman to don the crown.
