Advocating for people with disabilities


Kisha Stover of Hyattsville MD was crowned Ms. Wheelchair Maryland 2022 on December 4, 2021, at the Rockville Hilton.

Kisha became Ms. Wheelchair Maryland after a full day of competition which
included workshops, private interviews, and a platform speech. She will now serve as Maryland’s state titleholder for one year and will prepare to represent the state of Maryland and compete in the Ms. Wheelchair America 2022 pageant in Little Rock, AR, from July 1 – July 7, 2022

The Ms. Wheelchair Maryland and Ms. Wheelchair America organizations do not judge beauty. Instead, the Ms. Wheelchair Maryland and Ms. Wheelchair America organizations focus on advocacy and recognizing the free spirit and accomplishments of women who use wheelchairs.

Throughout her reign, Kisha will serve as a spokeswoman throughout the state where she can discuss awareness, acceptance, and the overall understanding of disabilities with the general public. She will have the opportunity to travel across the state, visit advocacy groups, make public appearances, including possible parade appearances,
and is available to conduct interviews.

Kisha will also use her year as Ms. Wheelchair Maryland 2022 to share her platform: Communicate, educate, participate, and feel great! With her platform, she plans to encourage and foster open communication between individuals with and without disabilities. Ultimately, she hopes to highlight and raise awareness about the importance of education among the disabled population and the issues of housing that individuals with disabilities face in our community. She believes that everyone has unique abilities and wants to encourage others to embrace their strengths, participate in their communities, and reach for their dreams.

Kisha uses a wheelchair for mobility due to cerebral palsy. She, however, has not let these circumstances stop her. Kisha sets an example for other individuals who also use wheelchairs for mobility.

Kisha enjoys adaptive sports like cycling and has tried to play wheelchair tennis in the past. She has fun in her community going out to restaurants and Dave and Buster’s. She is currently a full-time student attending the University of Maryland Global College. She will receive her bachelor’s degree in marketing in 2024. In 2012 she received her associate’s degree in general studies and marketing management, from Prince George’s Community College.
