Hello, my name is Savanah Overturf or you may know me as Savy Smiles. I am no different than any of you, we are all unique. Like a tapestry of art, we collide into our personality, our self-esteem and into others. My story is like all of yours with ups and downs, curves and bends. Being uniquely abled makes it so sometimes those curves can dip deep, so it can be hard to come back up for air. I’m here to show the world that no matter how large the dip may be, there is always a way out. I was born with a failure to thrive, meaning I struggled to live. I also have autism, and epilepsy. You might recognize me by my amazing service dog, Leia. So if you see me and my large standard poodle feel free to come say hello. I am a Special Olympics athlete and am in their leadership program. I am also Colorado Miss Amazing 2017 and a USA Miss Amazing Ambassador. Miss Amazing is a pageant for woman and girls with disabilities, to give us the power to create social change. I love giving motivational speeches locally, and have done disability simulation panels at many conferences. I have recently graduated from Front Range Community College with my AA and am now pursuing a degree in communication with a speech teacher license. I am also a proud member of the disability coalition board in Loveland, Colorado. I love art and being able to speak openly to other through music, and in my opinion, speech is an amazing form of art. I am a geek of all trades and a passionate music lover. I find it gives me an outlet to be anyone, and music is what has helped shape me. So if you hear me on the radio, pick-up your snacks, settle in, and get ready to sing along.
