A physically challenged woman Vahen King, 44, has won the ‘Miss Wheelchair Contest in Canada.A friend suggested her to take a part in beauty contest but she wasn’t happy with this idea. Because she thought she is over 40 and also uses a wheel chair.But when the first Miss Wheelchair Canada competition was announced, she decided to take part in it. In an interview she said “When the competition was announced, I decided that, win or lose, I must be able to do away with some of the stereotypes about what a person using a wheel chair can do.”After winning the contest she said “Honestly I wasn’t sure if it was for me. I was overwhelmed with emotions”.Vahen went to Vancouver last week where she won. She will also be participating in the Miss Wheelchair World Contest in next month. It will be held in Warsaw, Poland.
