PETAL, MS (WDAM) -

A Petal High School teenager proves that one's dreams really can come true. She showed off one of her talents from her pageant competition.

Seventeen-year-old Savanna Thompson was crowned Miss Amazing Teen Queen this weekend.

 “I felt happy, excited, overjoyed. It was awesome,” Thompson said.

The Miss Amazing Pageant is a competition for girls with disabilities.

“You could not be more proud than me and her father,” said mom, Missy Thompson.

For her talent, Savanna Thompson talked in different accents on stage.

“The crowd thoroughly enjoyed it, they laughed when she laughed,” Missy Thompson said. 

Besides from her talents and beautiful looks, she has a great heart and a bubbly personality.

“If you’re upset she’s upset for you she doesn’t want anyone to be upset around her,” Missy Thompson said. 

People with Williams syndrome often have bubbly and gregarious personalities like Savanna Thompson. It is a rare disorder that affects about 20,000 people in the United States. People with this disability usually have heart or kidney problems, but Savanna Thompson suffers from severe scoliosis.

 “She doesn’t cry and she doesn’t hurt, I mean she’s had 14 surgeries and never complains about pain,” said her aunt, Lisa Weathers.

However, Savanna Thompson's positivity and love for others makes her unique.

“She keeps me going she really does, if it wasn’t for her I don’t know what I’d do,” Missy Thompson said.

Savanna Thompson will represent Mississippi for the national competition in Chicago during July.
