Junkies are big fans of “genuine”… And Diana Sweeney’s work with the Special Olympics leads us to believe she’s got ‘genuine’ all over her! 🙂
From the Polar Plunge Profile of Diana – as she prepared to take the frigid jump into the icy waters of Lake Tahoe to benefit Special Olympics – Diana says,
“The Special Olympics is an extremely important program to me. I have worked with special needs students from a very young age, and I couldn’t imagine my life without my involvement with the Special Olympics. I look forward to every single event, and I cannot wait to see all of my friends and spend time with the best people I know.”
In Atlantic City, Diana was named a finalist for the new S.T.E.M. scholarship – given to Miss America contestants who are pursing careers in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math. Diana’s goal is to become a Math Professor – and let me just say… If Diana were my math professor in college, she would’ve smelled a whole lot better than the guy I had to learn from! LOL! It’s a wonder I made it through that class!
All the best to Diana as she continues her super special work with Special Olympics and pursues her career 🙂
