Princeton, NJ (PRWEB) November 15, 2012
Camille Schrier 13 of Newtown, Pennsylvania and Alexandra Coleman 16 of Skillman, New Jersey share more than a passion for pageantry. Both Hun School students will compete at the National American Miss (NAM) Pageant in Anaheim, California November 17th 23rd. Perhaps more of a coincidence, however, is that both students also utilize pageantry as a platform to educate others on Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome (EDS).
Camille is the reigning Pennsylvania State Queen and will contend for the title of National American Miss Teen. Alexandra won the Actress and Photogenic competitions at the New Jersey State Finals and was second runner-up in the Spokesmodel competition. She will contend for the title of National All-American Miss Junior Teen.
The diagnosis the girls share is EDS, a rare connective tissue disorder that affects skin, muscle, and ligament function. Both Camille and Alexandra have employed their success in pageants to educate others about the disorder and the challenges it causes to those who suffer from it.
