Miss Tulsa State Fair

Thursday night I was crowned Miss Tulsa State Fair 2014!  These next couple of days I will be, and have already visited the Junior Fiddle Contest, Disney on Ice, PRCA Rodeo, and many more events.  I am so looking forward to the next couple of days promoting the fair and my platform!

More to come,

Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Hi All,

This past week I spoke to a group of sixth graders about nutrition.  In some way or another we got off on the topic of my travels and one boy asked which country was my favorite.  It is difficult for me to choose between my favorite countries because I liked each country for their distinct variations in culture, scenery, food, and tempo.

One of my favorite things about the port city of Rio de Janeiro is its landscape.  The industrial city of Rio de Janeiro sets off the coast, however in many ways shadows the favela, Rocinha.  Rocinha falls into a valley and is surrounded by the vegetated mountainside.  In the photos below, one can see people going about their daily duties, hard at work.

Quote of the Day

“I’ve missed over 9,000 shots in my career.  I’ve lost almost 300 games.  26 times I’ve been trusted to take the game winning shot and missed.  I’ve failed over and over again in my life.  And that is why I succeed.”  Michael Jordan

It seems as though those who fail most become most successful.  If this is true I think I will be just fine!
