Total Hours Served* - 12 hours

I founded “Hooked on Integrity,” and copyrighted the children’s book to coincide with the platform in 2007. I continue to speak to several youth groups about the importance of honesty, integrity, respect and self-motivation. I visit local schools to promote character education through reading stories, engaging with children through arts and crafts, and having discussions with them. Attached are photos of me interacting with several students (ranging from kindergarten to fourth grade) from elementary schools in my hometown. I also attached a picture of the thank you cards that I received from Mrs. Fedo's kindergarten class.

On behalf of National American Miss, I donated hundreds of books and stuffed animals to Goodwill of Charlotte, NC, and Duke Children's Hospital in Durham, NC. Thus far, I have received and attached thank you notes from both of the organizations.

I use my energy, creativity and kindred spirit to inspire, motivate and challenge children to be the absolute best that they can be in all that they do. Charity is a reward that can not be measured but will always be treasured. As so elegantly expressed by Etienne DeGrellet, “I expect to pass through this world but once: any good thing therefore that I can do, any kindness that I can show to any fellow creature, let me do it now. Let me not defer or neglect it, for I shall not pass this way again.” It is imperative that we do seize the moment and do something to make our world a better place. It is what Community Spirit is all about.
