Anahi Muniz, a high school student and Chick-Fil-A employee is an amazing young woman and very hard worker. She has overcome so many obstacles in her life and continues to have a positive attitude through it all.
She had to learn to speak, read and write English as a fourth grader. But that didn't stop her at all. She went on to excel at school and eventually graduated in the top 10% of her class. She has hopes and dreams of becoming a doctor but she knows it's going to be very expensive.
So when Chick-Fil-A heard about her story, they decided to reward her with a huge scholarship. She was rewarded a $25,000 towards her education. In this video, you can see how emotional she gets when she receives the award. You can tell just by watching, how much this truly means to her and how thankful she is.
I teared up with her, trying to imagine how hard it must have been to learn a new language and adapt in a new country. Her parents must be so incredibly proud of her. We're rooting and praying for you Anahi!
Our favorite country / pop / christian artist is at the top of the world...again! And we LOVE why! Carrie Underwood just received her award in the mail for Best Country Performance in 2014 for her song "Something In The Water."
And we love that at a time when you have to change the radio station every other song to keep your kids or grandkids from learning way too much too soon from such offensive lyrics, Carrie won for a song about BAPTISM!
Carrie's song is proof that you don't have to use vulgar language or be offensive in order to be successful! "Something In The Water" earned Carrie the highest first-week sales of her entire career, and was the best opening-week sales of ANY female country artist in 2014. The award honoring her achievement just arrived in the mail and she was very excited to share it with us!
Carrie posted on Instagram, "Look what came in the mail today! So excited!”
Congratulations, Carrie! Keep up the good work, and keep the good songs coming! In the meantime, we'll just keep watching this one. . .on REPEAT! :)
