Jarae Anderson is on her way to become the next Miss Wheelchair USA. She is currently representing South Carolina and her hometown of Beaufort, S.C.
When she was seven years old, Jarae was in a terrible car accident. The crash killed three of her family members. Three family members, including Jarae, were badly injured. Jarae has a spinal cord injury and is paralyzed from the waist down.
Even though the accident was difficult for the entire family, Jarae manages to keep a smile on her face and a flower in her hair.
