Sierra Sandison


Sierra Sandison, Miss Idaho 2014, is best known for launching the #showmeyourpump campaign and proudly wearing her insulin pump on the Miss America stage. Sierra now travels the country, speaking at schools, diabetes conferences, and keynoting at various events. She tells audiences of her journey from diagnosis to the Miss America stage, and spreads her message of overcoming adversity, as well as loving the things that make us unique, rather than hiding the things that make us different. In 2017 Sierra cycled 4200 miles across the United States as part of Team Bike Beyond. She is currently studying Mechanical and Biomedical Engineering at Boise State University.  You can follow her on Instagram and Twitter: @sierrasandison.
