On January 20th, I made my journey to Hawaii for 10 days to volunteer in the 2013 Pro Bowl Youth Clinics. Two other NFL Cheerleaders, six football players and I made our way to six different Hawaiian islands, Hilo, Kona, Kauai, Lanai, Maui and Molokai.
Throughout my Hawaiian journey, we went to over 15 schools. At these schools, we were able to let the students know a little bit about each of our stories and mainly focused on encouraging them to stay active, do well in school, and to set big goals and achieve them. Each school was unique in its own way. Some greeted us with leis and others sang us Hawaiian songs that told different island stories. Aside from motivating the students, we also held football and cheerleading clinics. Our girls were so talented and grateful to have us visit them since they rarely get opportunities like these.
It was really such a humbling experience to have been part of such an incredible program. I will always remember my 10 amazing days in beautiful Hawaii.
Mahalo to everyone who made my journey so special!
