Leaving behind the dazzling allure of New York City, our path led us to Bridgeport University in Connecticut, where destiny awaited. Amanda, a beacon of inspiration and resilience, had a momentous speaking engagement with “Living Undeterred” – a groundbreaking anti-drug organization.

From the opulent to the destitute, the young and the old, this silent predator had left a trail of destruction, tearing families apart and leaving scars in every corner of America.
With hearts heavy yet filled with determination, we continued further to Mystic, Connecticut, a place woven into the fabric of pop culture through the enchanting movie, “Mystic Pizza.” As serendipity would have it, we arrived just in time to celebrate the grandeur of the Fourth of July.
