Community Involvement:

The Travis Manion foundation is an organization close to my heart. This foundation develops opportunities and events which are designed to inspire, support, and raise money for gold star families who have lost loved ones in service to our nation. For the past two years, I've had the pleasure of attending the annual Travis Manion foundation's Prum Ball and helped raise over two thousand dollars for their cause. I plan to continue to support our military families with the Travis Manion foundation and many other military support groups throughout the Philadelphia area.

Favorite Appearance and Why:

Currently, the most exciting appearance was at a cheer facility in Central Pennsylvania called Cheer Tyme. A few other cheerleaders and I were able to attend a practice of the fabulous Cheer Inspiration. Cheer Inspiration is an inclusive team which allows cheerleaders with various disabilities to come together and participate in their favorite sport - cheerleading. As a first-grade special education teacher myself, this appearance emotionally hit home. Walking into the facility, I was greeted by the owners of Cheer Tyme, and die-heart Eagles fans, Kim and Scott Braasch. Kim and Scott radiated with excitement as soon as we walked through the doors which made me feel right at home. I was graciously given the opportunity to lead the cheerleaders in their warm-up, and as I looked around the room - parents, cheerleaders and my teammates were all smiling ear to ear. Inclusion is imperative, especially as a first-grade special education teacher. When inclusion takes place, everyone in the room feels valued and welcome. Team Inspiration fulfills this goal and more! Even though I was there to help and inspire those cheerleaders, they were the ones who unknowingly inspired me. This night will forever leave an imprint on my heart.
