Connor Boss, Miss Florida USA Contestant, is Legally Blind


By now you’ve seen the blind dude who rattled off the best things about being blind – one of which was every girl is a “10.” Let us introduce you to a ’10′ who happens to be legally blind.

At the age of 8, Connor Boss was diagnosed with Stargardts Disease and slowly lost her vision. She started competing in pageants due in part to her friends and her affinity for dressing up. Now, she’s the first legally blind contestant to compete in Miss Florida USA.

The 18-year-old Miss Delray Beach USA 2013 recently graduated from Glades Day School and will attend Florida State in the fall with the hopes of receiving her degree in 2016.

According to the Daily Mail, Connor can’t drive a car, and required special magnifiers, enlarged worksheets, books on CD and having tests read to her to excel in school. As far as the pageants go, Boss admits she has trouble with stairs, but gets extra rehearsal time so she can navigate the stage BY SOUND AND MEMORY!

The best part of this story is her confession that she often walks into the men’s bathroom. Luckily, Ben Roethlisberger’s never been in one.
