So, I’m dancing in the Jack Tent this year at the Reno Rodeo... if you’re from Reno you know that the Jack Tent is the place to be during Rodeo. It’s a blast and it is known for its dancers.

So, let me start this off by saying that I LOVE this guy’s family. We still have a “good” relationship and they are supportive of different events in my life – like my TEDx talk. Which honestly, means a lot to me.
