I was recently lucky enough to bring Fight Back to Utah and I had an insanely great time, despite my trip starting off with a somewhat awkward encounter at the Portland Airport. As a side note, thank you to my unnamed family member who decided to store his giant screwdrivers in one of my carry on bags causing a “situation” at the airport. That aside, the rest of the trip was great. KJZZ News at Nine was very generous to have me on their morning show and share the Girls Fight Back Message with their viewers. Their anchors were so enthusiastic about our mission and the segment was fun, informative and such a positive step in spreading our message.
Luckily for me, the fun did not end there! Right after KJZZ, I hopped in my car and drove over to Salt Lake City Community College for a Students Fight Back seminar. The students and staff at SLCC are amazing and a very enthusiastic, welcoming crowd. We had a great seminar with great participation and questions from the audience. There really is no comparison to seeing staff and students yell, “Stop! Leave me alone! I don’t want any problems” at each other and then practice the badass ballet and call each other “creepy weirdos.” It is just plain awesome!
In short, Utah was great. KJZZ was amazing and SLCC was an absolute blast. Thanks for the memories! Watch the first part of my KJZZ interview at:
