Advocating for people with disabilities

Patrina Franklin, Ms. Wheelchair Maryland 2013

I would like to give a big thank you to everyone involved with making Ms. Wheelchair Maryland possible. I am truly blessed and honored to have been crowned Ms. Wheelchair Maryland 2013. During my weekend stay at the Hilton Hotel in Rockville, Maryland I was able to create memorable and meaningful friendships with the other contestants. I’m sure this is only the beginning of many more adventures to come with these ladies. I’m proud to say my strong determination and ambition paid off as this was my second time running for the title.

Follow Patrina’s Year …

As a 23 year old single mother of a 6 year old daughter I continue to work hard in an effort to show her that anything is possible if you try. Currently I work as a rehabilitative specialist at Omni House located in Glen Burnie, Maryland and attend The University of Maryland, Baltimore County where I am majoring in social work. I hope to touch the lives of others during my reign as I advocate for disability awareness. Please keep your eyes and hears open for events I will be hosting and attending.
