A Remarkable Journey

World Summer Games in Shanghai, China 2007
In 2007, I was fortunate to have been selected as one of 12 athletes from around the world to serve as an International Global Messenger, a spokesperson and representative for my fellow athletes. It was a remarkable journey during which I traveled and spent time with other athletes, world leaders and so many others. It was during a trip to Shanghai for the Special Olympics World Summer Games, that I was privileged to meet Eunice Kennedy Shriver herself, an honor I will never forget. My biggest dream came true that day. I'm so thankful to my travel partner, Jeanne Hrovat from SOWI for capturing this moment.
