As I look back on this incredible journey, I cannot help but smile. The memories come flowing back to me like it was just yesterday that we were boarding the plane to southwest Asia. It was such an honor and a privilege to be the only rookie on tour. I had a blast representing my rookie class as well as the entire Miami Dolphins Cheerleaders organization. I met so many amazing people that have made an everlasting impact on my life. I have learned a new sense of hope, courage, faith, and patriotism from the brave men and women who fight for our country every single day. I was able to meet so many amazing people with inspiring stories to share. It’s the little moments and personal conversations that mean the most to me. I sat down one morning with a young man at breakfast and helped him plan out his proposal that he will set up for his girlfriend when he returns home from Afghanistan. That was a feeling of joy and connection that I will never forget.
This has truly been one of the best experiences of my entire life! I feel so blessed and thankful that I was able to be a part of this extraordinary tour. The men and women of our military will always hold a special place in my heart. I truly enjoyed being able to give back to our troops for all that they do for us! I will cherish the memories that I made with our military overseas forever!
