Recorded for a British Documentary

I got to travel to Kansas City today to film with World Media Rights from Great Britain for a British Documentary. Alida and Ashley were good peeps to film with. They took great care of me. Unfortunately, they had to leave right after we finished to drive to another city for another story.

They were terrific peeps I would have loved to spend more time with! I think the show will turn out great despite obstacles (thunder & lighting).

I got to enjoy a fantastic dinner at Ruth Chris in Kansas City! Head home tomorrow morning. I will keep you posted if it is possible for us Americans to view this British show somehow! :) Life truly is GOOD!!!

I was a UK Kappa when I was attacked in 1997. Each year, my sorority holds an event to raise money for Holly's House. This year the fabulous Philanthropy Chair, Chloe Ward, planned an awesome 5K in my honor.

Terrific Speaking Engagement at SEPC2011

I got to speak at an amazing conference on Saturday called the South Eastern Panhellenic Conference. It was filled with amazing Sorority Women Leaders, Posh Panhellenic Peeps, and awesome other speakers!

I was so lucky and blessed to be a part of the Jean H. Wells Leadership Series- Omega Program. My room was packed with women and a few men.... they had to bring in extra chairs. I had a young lady faint during the beginning of my presentation but we were able to get her up and out of the room. She left in style saying "Y'all will never forget about this." I heard she was taken to the hospital to be checked out and I hope everything turns out ok for her.

The rest of the talk went of without a hitch. I felt so supported by the audience with their attention and even tears.

I got so many Facebook and Twitter Followers afterwards and even during :) The feedback from these people has been unbelievable. I haven't gotten to see the evaluations yet, but can't wait.

I want to thank the young lady that confided in me my after I spoke. She was so brave in telling me her story and I know she will find healing!

If you or a friend are sexually assaulted... Please call 1-800-656-HOPE or check out the online hotline.
