Speaking of Broadway, a wonderful organization that works with people with disabilities, called Chai Lifeline, invited many of us to a wonderful matinee of Phantom of the Opera. It was amazing. Here I am with Lauren Plunka, my newest support person.
And here's another photo of me, my dad Fred, and Kate outside the Broadway theater where Daniel's Music Foundation performed. If you don't know about this great group, check them out: http://www.danielsmusic.org/
In July, Daniel's Music Foundation --where I take music classes -- had a chance to perform on Broadway. The Yankees charity, called Hope, sponsored the event, and as a surprise gave $10,000 to the foundation. It was an incredible experience. Here are pictures of me and Kate, my support person who was with me all day, coming out the stage door, and another with Kate and my dad Fred.
This summer, I went to Maine with my parents, my aunt, and my cousins for a week and a half. (My cousin Lily and I worked on another music video, from Grease... not ready yet). After that, I took a trip to San Francisco for a week with an organization called Kids of Courage. One of the most amazing things I did there was pet a real-life elephant! Even though I was nervous and scared, I was excited at the same time. Unfortunately, I got sick a few days into the trip and ended up in the infirmary. However, I got a bouquet of flowers from Zac Efron!!!! The only problem with that, was that it didn’t come with any card, but it was still amazing. Even though I got sick, I had a really great time on the trip. I am glad to be home, though.
