Another Tri-Stater is making a debut on the big screen. Ali Shanks is 8 years old and goes to West Terrace Elementary School in Evansville. You may recognize her as last year’s Easter Seals Child Representative.
She’s in the HBO documentary called ‘Miss, You Can Do It’. The film celebrates girls with disabilities and their dreams.
The setting is the annual ‘Miss, You Can Do It’ Pageant founded by Abbey Curran, Miss Iowa USA in 2008. She was the first Miss USA with a disability and founded this pageant to give other girls a chance to do the same.
Ali is one of the girls featured in the documentary, which will be on HBO again tomorrow night at 7 p.m.
