On July 11th I went on another Kids Of Courage Trip to L.A. for the second time. I was so thrilled to go with all my friends on this trip, like Perry Goldberger and Sam Landau from my old school, along with 100 other kids with different kinds of medical conditions. I was also excited to see my old counselor, Connie, from the first L.A. trip. They sent me all my Kids Of Courage stuff that I needed for the trip like t-shirts and special labels to put on my luggage. The flight left from Newark at 12:00 and my parents and Rachel Eisenberg brought me to the airport. My counselors were in LA so another counselor, Rachel Bols, sat next to me on the flight. She was so nice!!!
Once we landed in L.A. we went straight to our hotel and had dinner with Perry and my counselor Sara. After dinner there was a magic show with the amazing magician David Blaine who came on the flight with us. He hypnotized some counselors!
Here is me in my cool hotel room, on Shabbat.
During the trip we went to Hollywood BLVD and went to the wax museum and saw statues of Zac Efron, Eddie Murphy, Whoopi Goldberg, and some of my other favorite stars. Zac Efron's statue looked so lifelike!! I was just so excited to see it, because it felt like I was actually meeting him in real life.
This is me with my boyfriend Zac Efron (LOL)
Another fun activity was when we went to Knotts Berry Farm and I got to see a bunch of my favorite t.v. stars from Disney Channel and Nickelodeon. It was so amazing and they were so nice to all of us. I got all of their autographs
Here is a picture of me and Devin who's on a show called Ned's Declassified. He was so nice and friendly.
On the last day we went to Disney Land, but I spent the whole day in the infirmary and lost my glasses. In the infirmary they were really nice and took great care of me. Even though I missed out on Disney Land I wasn't too upset because I had been there before.
When we were in Universal Studios, I got to meet Curious George, Madagascar,and Zorro. I also went to the gift shop and looked around, but didn't buy anything
Here I'm with Curious George and my counselor Shani who was really amazing.
I had such an amazing time on this trip and met a lot of great people. I love Kids of Courage!! I'm really looking forward to the next trip!!!!!!!!!!!!
