My Visit to Myers Middle School


Friday afternoon before my on air shift I got a chance to speak to the young girls of Myers Middle School. We talked about how difficult it can be for women coming up in the industry. The struggles that I was faced with climbing the ladder. One thing I touched on was my weight issues as a young girl in school and how it affected me as an adult.

The most humbling experience was when a young girl told me she’s facing the same weight issue and how she’s managed to lose weight after the passing of her mother and father and how my story gave her the strength to keep pushing on. If I am able to touch one person a day then my job is done. It always puts why God chose me to have a platform in perspective. Its never about me, its about them.

I enjoyed speaking to the young ladies at Myers Middle School. You guys are the best! Never give up on your dreams!
