In this post Carrie shares with us her experience with the American Girl Fashion Show. 

Thanks Carrie for sharing your insight on the event!

I can still remember the day I met Mrs. Edenzon; I was in the first grade and at my brother’s baseball game. We were sitting next to her and talking; her son was on the other team. She asked me if I liked American Girl dolls and I said I loved them!  That’s when she got the idea to have girls around my age do the American Girl Fashion Show to raise awareness about Special Olympics New Jersey.

 That’s how I got started with Special Olympics New Jersey.  Since then, I have worked as a model in the show and I’m a Junior Committee member. I have learned that people with special needs are just like me; they just take a little longer to do things. Special Olympics New Jersey and the American Girl Fashion Show has meant a lot to me because I love to play sports and I want everyone to have the same opportunity that I do. It feels really good to do something for people and have fun doing it, and that’s what the American Girl Fashion Show lets you do.
