With the holiday season approaching and the war in Ukraine ongoing, I wanted to remind everyone that I am still making and selling my Ukraine Flower Crown scrunchies. I’ve raised more than $500 and am hoping to double that this holiday season.
I also wanted to update everyone on what I’ve been up to. Last spring, I performed a show twirl at my school talent show. It was dedicated to Ukraine. I twirled my batons along with blue and yellow gymnastics ribbons. Everyone loved it.
In July, I attended AYOP (Baton Twirling Nationals) and won first place in the interview/modeling portion of the Beginner 13-15 pageant. It was such an honor to hear my name and state called. I also finished top 3 in novice 2-baton; 8th in flag; 11th in American Girl Model; 11th in overall pageant, and top 15 in beginner pageant and intermediate X-strut.
This fall, I’ve been field twirling for my high school. I’m looking forward to twirling for my school at NCA Nationals – Spirit Category. Competition season also starts soon. My first contest is in Nebraska. I’ve moved up to intermediate level, which has been a goal of mine for awhile. Another great thing I’m doing is teaching basic skills to two novice twirlers.
Thank you for visiting my website and helping with my fundraiser for Ukraine. This is a long-term project as it will take a lifetime for Ukraine to recover from what has happened. There are baton twirlers in Ukraine. My mom and I have been trying to connect with them. If anyone has any contacts please let me know. I would love to collect used costumes and batons and send them to them. Someday, you will twirl again, Ukraine. For this, we all pray.
Love and Prayers,
