My name is Peyton Wood. I am currently a sophomore Theatre Performance major at Baylor University in Waco, Texas. I was finally diagnosed with misophonia earlier this year but have been displaying symptoms for about 2 years now. Misophonia affects many parts of daily life for me, so I always have ear plugs on me just in case I need them. I want to bring Misophonia International to the Miss America stage next year by making it my platform to raise money for the "Suffering Without Silence" initiative for research and outreach.
