“Don’t tell me the sky’s the limit when I know there are footprints on the moon.”
This is probably one of my all-time favorite quotes that I live by. I am so very blessed to be able to say that I am Miss Frisco 2011, but this title and crown ultimately mean nothing if I don’t choose to use them to serve others. As I begin a new journey, the sky is no longer my limit. I only have one year to represent the city of Frisco, so I am ready to get started and reach for the moon!
On Thursday November 4th, I had my first official appearance as Miss Frisco at an event called “Boots and Bandanas” that benefitted Camp Summit. The purpose of Camp Summit is to provide children and adults with disabilities with an opportunity to have a camp experience that will foster personal growth and independence. At the benefit, I worked with a 12-year-old named Lucia asking guests to give donations to the “Sponsor a Horse” program. I am not much of a salesperson, but Lucia impressed everyone with her sales pitch about the horses at Camp Summit. Together we were able to raise over $4000 in just a few hours!! I met a very special boy named Chance that has cerebral palsy and has attended Camp Summit for many years. Chance is unable to speak on his own, so he uses a computer with icons on it that gives him a voice and allows him to have conversations. I was absolutely amazed that a piece of technology could let someone communicate when they might not have been able to otherwise. It was great to be a part of a benefit that gives children like Chance the opportunity to be more independent.
