Making the News Nationally!

I wanna thank Newark, NJ Mayor Cory Booker for his heroic work on Monday after the 2010 Holiday Blizzard pushing cars out the snow and helping streets get plowed. Just by recording him and taking photos, they aired on ABC 7 Good Morning America, Fox 5 News and The Weather Channel. I'm so excited for this honor and I would love to thank my honorable Mayor Cory Booker for working as hard as he did.

My Photo and Video Featured on NY Daily News Website

What turned out to be a random moment turned out to be a quite cool one. I tweeted a photo and video to my mayor, Newark, NJ Mayor Cory Booker last night to wake up to various positive feedback from tweets all over. The City of Newark and the Mayor Cory Booker loved my work. I didn't think it would get around like and to the attention of the NY Daily News. They requested my permission to use and credit my photo and video clip of Mayor Cory Booker helping local residents get through and out of the unplowed streets of Newark with man-power. I was quite honored that they would want to use my photograph and video.
Mayor Cory Booker's response was:CoryBooker Wow! That's kind of awesome.

Wow what a snow day for me?! :-)

I Won The Ultimate Michael Jackson Basket Raffle

All it took was $10 and a dream. I am such a huge Michael Jackson fan and the raffle was originally planned for last year. The non profit organization, Black Cotton Foundation, that held the event did not get enough sells of raffle tickets which caused them to postpone yet add more items to the basket. This gave me a second chance at it. So when I heard they were doing it, I had to jump on it. So my boyfriend and I purchased a ticket each. I kept my fingers crossed until they got sore lol. Then something else came up when they had to push the date back from Nov. 20th to Dec, 19th. That second date kind of through me off because I was low on cash and had no idea on how to get there. It was also a colder day and the train schedule is the worse on Sundays. So I did not attend. I sat home worried that if they did pick my name and I was not present would they raffle it off again. So after watching the Giants get defeated against the Phil. Eagles I became sadder. Then at 7:32 p.m. I received a phone call from my brother and he passed the phone to someone else. Not realizing I was on speaker, the crowd scared me when they yelled out "You won!" I screamed and jumped for joy. I just couldn't believe what I had heard. I love every item in the basket from the cds to the dolls. Thank you to the random person who pulled my ticket and Black Cotton Foundation. Here are a few photos I would love to share.
