If you wanna see something amazing, then take a look at Ramsey Carpenter…
As eight years old, Ramsey fell in love with the fiddle. And for years, Ramsey traveled and performed – building quite a reputation for herself. In fact, people inside Blue Grass circles began to call her, “the girl with the green fiddle”. But when Ramsey tried to play for her grandfather on his birthday – something just wasn’t “right”. She explains it as “watching my fingers, trying to play, but not being able to control them.”
She later discovered that she had Multiple Sclerosis.
For most young women her age, hearing the phrase “you have MS,” would be a death-blow.
But not Ramsey. And after 4 tries, she finally won the title of Miss Kentucky. Ramsey tells her whole story in our Pageant Junkies Podcast – which you can find at this link… Ramsey is an amazing story-teller, and her story is definitely worth hearing! I highly encourage you to listen to her podcast when you get a chance!
But winning Miss Kentucky was just the beginning for Ramsey… She then went on to be named a Preliminary Talent award winner at Miss America, have her interview featured on the Miss America DVD, and be named the Top Instrumentalist, as well as a Top 12 finalist at Miss America!
Then – she went back to Kentucky, served as the spokesperson for “Kentucky Proud” promoting agricultural safety and and education, visited 170 schools, all while serving as a National MS Society Board Member and advocating for MS research and awareness.
Now that she’s crowning a new Miss Kentucky, Ramsey plans to be a teacher – helping students with learning and behavior disorders. And we know, she’ll continue playing her beloved fiddle as long as she can – Hopefully, for years and years to come. 🙂
