With the campers.

With Mrs. Nebraska and Miss Douglas County.

I was asked to help out with a program, at the University of Nebraska Omaha, that helped young girls aged 5-10 years old with self confidence. The girls learned a dance with the UNO dance team and performed during half time of the UNO volleyball game. Along with Mrs. Nebraska and Miss Douglas County we helped the girls become more comfortable with public speaking. The girls had some fun showing us their talents, this ranged from a fun dance to singing or cheering.

The second day we had a tea party and then picked a girl that we thought had what it takes to be Little Miss Maverick. Emily won, but any of these girls could have been chosen. They grew an incredible amount. I really think this program helped with the girls' self esteem. They all left feeling more confident with themselves than when they came.

Best regards,

Monday Night Live

Tonight Amanda Soltero and I were asked to judge the University of Nebraska- Lincoln Homecoming skits. This took place at the Leid Center and it was packed to capacity of excited UNL students. Husker spirit filled the theater as we watched dances, skits and steps. The creativity put into these was amazing. We couldn't stop laughing. The winner did a knock off from the America's Got Talent show, check it out here. This group went last and I've never heard a louder applause! It was fun for Amanda and I to be apart of this experience. We are both UNL students, Amanda a freshman while I'm a senior anticipating graduation in December.

Go Huskers!
