Miss Idaho Will Wear Her Insulin Pump on Stage at Miss America

"Growing up, I never wanted to be Miss America, but I knew I wanted to make a difference," says Miss Idaho Sierra Sandison, who will compete in Sunday's Miss America pageant in Atlantic City, New Jersey.

The shot showed Sandison, a Type 1 diabetic, wearing her insulin pump in the Miss Idaho competition in July. It propelled the college student into the spotlight and inspired others with diabetes to share photos of their own medical hardware with the hashtag #showmeyourpump.
