Women That Soar Awards

Photo Credit: Danny Campbell

Last Saturday, I was honored to receive the Leadership Award presented by Gina Grant and her amazing organization - Women That Soar - at their annual awards gala.  I can't tell you how honored I am to be recognized by WTS.  Woman That Soar was created to empower and inspire women spiritually, financially, mentally and physically.  WTS believes that if women share their stories of trials, tribulations and triumphs, we can encourage one another to overcome our obstacles.  Apparently they thought my story could inspire others dealing with autism among other things in their lives.

It was a great night.  My friend and Football Wives castmate Melani Ismail presented my award.  Actress Regina King was one of the hosts and some of my favorite artists performed - Wess Morgan, Kenny Lattimore and Michelle Williams (formerly of Destiny's Child).  And I've got to give a shout out to my friends at Watters who let me borrow that one-of-a-kind gown.  It was a great night - one I won't forget.
