RTT, Congressional Award, and New Social Media!

Hey y’all!

It’s a beautiful day in Byhalia. I had a pretty busy week with Merit Koch and Co. Let’s recap the highlights!

Real Talk Tuesday (#RTT) made its second appearance on the channel, offering some insight into how to deal with changes and time. It’s not easy, but knowing you aren’t alone can help.

Youtube is my life. Whether I’m binge watching a web series or learning how to shine my cowgirl boots, Youtube is where I go for everything! So if you’re an avid Youtuber, let’s be friends. Click here to go to my user page and subscribe today!


My own Bronze and Silver Congressional medals.

This weekend I had the unbelievable opportunity to perform the National Anthem for the Congressional Awards in Jackson, MS. The Congressional Awards program is the only civilian award given by Congress to commend youth for public service and personal development goals. Teens complete over 400 hours of community volunteer work as well as countless hours achieving goals in fitness, expedition, and personal improvement.

This program means so much to me particularly since I’m a bronze, silver, and gold medal recipient. I know how much work it takes to achieve those awards. I am in awe of anyone who does so much for their communities as well as their own personal development. For more information or to join the program, visit here to their main website.

This event was special to me since I saw so many of my young acting students take home the bronze, silver, and gold for setting goals and completing them. I also met Congressman Gregg Harper, which was admittedly pretty kickin’ for this Mississippi Girl.

While the country (and my state) may have so many problems,  it’s encouraging to see these young people tackle the task of improving their communities.

Finally, I am on Instagram as well as Facebook. Let’s be friends and have a good time on the interwebs.
