Breanna Bogucki, 15, shares a laugh with her family in their Cary home while talking about her experience competing in and winning Special Talents America, a talent competition for kids with special needs. Bogucki, who has Obsessive Compulsive Disorder and high-functioning autism, beat out eight acts in the contest, which draws people from Michigan, Indiana and Illinois. Bogucki won the competition last week by singing Taylor Swift's "Mean."
