Yep, You Guessed it…Me….


I am one of the winners for the Expressions of Hunger Video Contest who will be featured on the front of  Cheerios Boxes, sold exclusively at nationwide ShopRite stores this Fall 2010!

The Expressions of Hunger Video Contest focused on sharing emotions, thoughts and feelings through music, poetry, performance, art and storytelling to enlighten others about hunger in our community.

I am looking forward to my Cheerios photo shoot and I’ll be sure to let you all know when my picture and name are in the cereal aisles!


Keeping in line with my cereal theme of the day, I thought I’d share with you a tasty breakfast idea that is an easy go-to-snack and convenient on-the-go breakfast idea…Enjoy!
