Participate in a cause.
On September 27, 2013 I participated in YMCA’s stairclimb. I climbed 75 stories in 22 minutes . Proceeds from the Stair Climb for Los Angeles benefit Y programs that support youth development, healthy living and social responsibility
i trained for one month. It was a great work out. My calves definitely developed some major muscle to the point that my skinny jeans wouldn’t fit…in the calves, lol. Chocolate milk became my best friend. Brunch on Saturday mornings motivated me to get up and train.
Help A Missionary For a Month
In March 2013, I left Manila and flew to Davao City. I stayed with a missionary and his family for one month. I taught English and piano. I attended their police devotions on Thursday. I played the piano for Wednesday services and Sunday services.
It was a humbling experience to live as they did. One girl I met she would eat lunch and dinner at the church after services. I noticed she only ate meat…I asked her about it. She shared with me that at her house they only ate rice and vegetables. Whenever she gets a chance to eat anything other than that she indulges. I really enjoyed buying them snacks and candies. There were always so shocked and grateful.
Sing A Solo
While I was in the Philippines I also attended a police academy’s Bible study every Thursday night. My first night there I was asked to sing a solo. The first time I ever sing a solo and it happened to be in front of hundreds of men and women. I also was given a chance to sing a solo on a radio station. Most incredible experience I will ever remember.
