Women empowering all people with disAbilities

Congratulations, Tiffany Hendrickson!

Ms. Wheelchair California 2014

Ms.Wheelchair California

Ms. Wheelchair California is Tiffany Hendrickson. Tiffany is working towards her single subject teaching credential for Agriculture at California State University, Fresno. After earning her B. S. Degree in December 2013 in Agriculture Education with a communications option she knew she wanted to educate society about the opportunities the agriculture industry has to offer.

Growing up with Cerebral Palsy, Tiffany was accustomed to doing things differently, thinking outside the box and making life work for her. This attitude was put to the test when her family moved to Los Banos, CA. She became active with 4-H, and FFA showing livestock at country fairs, and competing at public speaking events. Although these activities are not typical for someone to choose to do from a wheelchair, she developed a drive to improve her abilities. By the time Tiffany completed her career in the FFA in 2009 she had received her American FFA degree, and had been one of the only members with a disability to do so.

Tiffany's goal along with becoming a voice to the disabled community is to bridge the gap between the disabled community and the agriculture industry.

As Ms. Wheelchair California

Her duties are numerous. Each year she has the opportunity to travel, make public appearances, and conduct radio, print, and television interviews in the fulfillment of her responsibilities. These include promoting awareness of the need to eliminate architectural and attitudinal barriers, educating Californians on disability issues, and informing the public of the achievements of people with disabilities across our great state.
