    Whether you are blind or speech impaired doesn't have anything to do with how you are in your mind. If you can process the questions that the judges ask and you can give good answers you shouldn't have any problem with winning a pageant. Theres more to those pageants than beauty.If it was just beauty they'd still be there sorting it all out.
