Miss California United States - 2021

Amanda Ford

My platform is autism acceptance, this platform is close to my heart because my little sister has a diagnosis of autism spectrum disorder. From a young age, I knew I wanted to help individuals like my sister. This quickly grew into a passion as I started working at the First 5 organization as a youth mentor for children on the spectrum. I then became a peer fitness trainer at the gym fitness for autism to help teens and young adults with autism learn about physical and mental health. Today, I volunteer with the Autism Society and the Organization for Autism Research, working to educate others on what Autism is and how they can be a friend and ally to those with this diagnosis.
