Meeting my idol Ciara

In November 2013, I traveled a half hour to meet Ciara for a charity event called Coats for Kids. It truly was the most amazing experience ever.

When Ciara came out I gasped. I just could not believe my eyes. I couldn’t believe how beautiful and kind she was. I thought, “This is the girl I have grown up watching right before my eyes.” Once the shock wore off, and it was time for me to take a photo with her, I was actually calm. She held my phone and said “You do it”. So I tapped the round button on the screen, and the photos of us were shot. A few came out blurry, so we took several better ones. I was so happy that I was running around (not exaggerating). I was so excited and I couldn’t wait to post them on my social media. It was a wonderful moment. Not only did I support the event by being there, I was able to see my favorite recording artist.
