Along the road of my reign as Mrs Beaverton America 2010, I have had many appearances. 2 of my favorite were the Sleep Country PJ Bowl @ Big Al's in Vancouver, WA and the Strike out against Parkinson's @ Sunset Lanes in Beaverton, OR. At these appearances I had the chance to meet foster children who are looking for good homes to go to. The ability to see how the foster care system first hand was amazing and right in line with my platform for "Speak out against domestic violence."
Helping at the event for Parkinson's was also an eye opener. I didn't know, that I know people with this life changing disease until that day, awareness truly is an an amazing thing no matter what the case!!!
