Her mom, Rosaleen “Ros” Williams, says Amelia’s journey to this title was challenging. She has dealt with depression, anxiety and even high-functioning autism.

But she’s been open about her struggles and has been able to do some public speaking about it.

“She really has blown us away with how far she has come,” Ros says.

The Williams family, including dad James “Tank” Williams, lives in Robbins Park.
