NAM Nationals starts with a bang!

I woke up this morning with my FaceBook news feed FLOODED with NAM Nationals pictures, and it's only day 2! It is so wonderful that all of theses amazing Princess and Jr. Pre-Teen representatives are sharing the fun with us. Although I enjoyed seeing all of the photos my absolute favorite pictures so far are from the NAM 70s Party. Holy smokes! It just puts a huge smile on my face to see all of these cuties having the time of their lives! I have collected some of the greatest photos to make sure you didn't miss any of the excitement.

The Princesses have their day at Disneyland today so you KNOW there will be cuteness overload coming! The Jr. Pre-Teens get right to work with Optional Contests, Rehearsals and the Actress Workshop today AND the Pre-Teens arrive today!!! Keep checking back for updates and photos to share the fun! #NamTeamEwing

Zoephia Decker-Knealing Leads the Charge with the Pajama Program

NAM girls are definitely the best!  We are so proud of Zoephia Decker-Knealing, Arizona Princess 2nd Runner Up, for her work with the Pajama Program.  Zoephia even received a call and a letter from the head of the Pajama Program, Genevieve Pitturo, to thank her for all her good work these past 2 years. The letter was so sweet stating "We need you on our staff in NYC" and referring to her as a special individual and an angel for the children who need help. 

Last year, Zoephia collected over 200 new books and 200 new pajamas for AZ kids in need.  Because of her success and it’s inspiration, Zoephia started her own foundation (Zoephia Foundation—her name means bringer of light and wisdom), which promotes literacy.  She is continuing to support Pajama Program but has expanded her efforts in both donation size and the number of events, as well as doing peer reading in her school’s kindergarten.  Zoephia just finished the fall drive for pajamas and books at school, with October marking the start of the “Danger Season” for kids in need who could use a warm pair of pajamas.   She's hoping donations will top last year with 300 new pajamas and 300 new books going to kids in need.  She is also planning a used magazine drive in February for local shelters and a fun run in April to collect more pajamas and books for Pajama Program.  
If you would like to follow Zoephia and her foundation visit
Below are pictures of the Learn to Skate Pajama Week Zoephia coordinated at the Scottsdale Ice Den where she skates along with QI Montessori, Verve Studios, Dancer’s Domain and North Valley Gymnastics.

Arizona Teen Cover Girl "Relays" for Family Members

Relay for Life is an important program that touches so many lives, one of those being the 2014 Arizona Teen Cover Girl, Ashley Barraza, who relays for Richard.  This really hits home for Ashley because she has lost two family members and has one currently sick. One of her family members died 16 days after she was able to help out at this event, where she interacted with people and talked with survivors. They also did a Luminaria Remebrance at night.

Ashley dressed as a super hero and posed with Tony Couch, the organizer of event.
