Meet Jazzy, an inspiration to all by breaking down barriers about people with Down syndrome and intellectual disabilities. Jazzy proves that down syndrome does not define her and she is not her diagnosis. She is a philanthropist, a motivational speaker, a beauty queen, and a preschool teacher at Jazzy's Kids. She is the reigning Utah's Miss Amazing and will be competing in the National Miss Amazing Pageant in Chicago this August. Jazzy is beyond amazing and her title suits her well.
