This is what it's all about

I was so moved this morning when I checked my e-mails, and I received a communication from Ottawa, Canada. It reads "I think your story is just amazing and of course I took notice when I heard that a 55 year old grandmother was trying out for the Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders. I too am 55 and when I was in my 20s I wanted to be a flight attendant. When I saw your story, I sent in my application to the airline - can you believe it. But I have to say you are really gorgeous."

This is what it's all about . . . . inspiring others to live out their dreams!!!! WooHoo - doesn't get any better than this. I would love to hear more from you on your dreams that you will make come true.

Cheering for the Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders squad?

What if -- The Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders had given me an opportunity to cheer at just one game? It would have made NFL history, Jerry's World history, world history, and quite frankly set a wonderful example for people in general to never give up on your dreams. I think about this topic often, because the interest is still there even after months when I first started training in January. I am still getting contacted weekly for reporter interviews; had one last week and another one coming up in two weeks. This demonstrates to me that people want to believe in something good. We want to be able to dream and to imagine that it could really happen. We want to believe in ourselves and in others -- that others will give us a chance without judging first. Never give up on your dreams -- they become our reality.

Interview with Brazil

Very exciting - I just finished a telephone interview with a reporter from Brazil who was interested in my training regimen including nutrition and exercise. He was also very interested in my journey to audition for the Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders. Apparently, the news went all over Brazil. His name is Bruno Thadeu Prado Rodrigues, and he was awesome to visit with. He is here covering the story of Brazil's most famous soccer player, Neymar, who will be performing Sat/Sun, June 2-3, at The Dallas Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, Texas. The Brazilian soccer team is a 5-Cup Champion Team!!! They do this all over the world. The stadium has standing room only -- 110,000 people!!! They are playing Mexico. He wanted me to come dance on the field with the player when he made his first score, but I am not sure that would prove to be appropriate for a Brazilian soccer game. :) I have watched videos of Neymar dance, and not only is he very cute - he dances very well. We wish our Brazilian friends the best of luck this weekend.
