Here I am with Briana Walker. Briana and I were both very proud winners this year of the 2007 "Outstanding Young Californian" Award. This prestigious award was presented to us by the California Jaycees Foundation and the California Junior Chamber of Commerce to honor the accomplishments of young adults who have impacted their communities in amazing ways and who have demonstrated that service to humanity is the best work of life ! Briana was involved in an accident that left her confined to a wheelchair, but that hasn't stopped her. She is the creator of a nationally famous wheelchair hip-hop dance team, teaches dance to disabled children, visits hospitals and rehab facilities to counsel those who are recently injured, competes in athletic events, and has released her first book, "Dance Anyway." It was such an honor for me to meet the other honorees who have all accomplished so much !!
