Career Day Surprise!


I was pleasantly surprised to meet the Multiple Grammy Award Winning Tina Campbell (from the Contemporary Gospel Sister Duo Mary Mary) during my most recent Career Day Event at a local Elementary School! I am not a fan of very many artists but I have been inspired by Tina and Erica Campbell's Gospel music since they began their career nearly 20 years ago. In fact, their video of the song "Get Up" is on my playlist and I still listen to it every time I work out!

The morning of the Career Day Event was already an exciting one, as I prepared to share my educational journey and professional experiences with students from the 1st grade through the 5th grade, then Tina Campbell joined us in the sign in room! She was so nice and as we stood together waiting to be photographed, I had a chance to personally thank her for inspiring so many of us throughout the years.

As 2017 begins, may you be inspired to continue to "Get Up" and work hard towards living in your purpose, achieving your goals and realizing your dreams! On behalf of the Southern California Mentoring Academy, I wish the very best for you and your family. Have a blessed, healthy, prosperous and Happy New Year!
