Lauren Becomes Special Olympics Ambassador
Ever since Lauren was young she has held a place in her heart for the Special Olympics. Recently Project UNIFY asked her to become an ambassador for this years event where she will play a pivotal role in the encouraging and empowering of all the competitors.
"I am honored to be asked to be an Ambassador for Special Olympics. I have been involved with the local chapter in my hometown since I was in 6th grade. There is nothing that makes me happier or inspires me more than spending time with the athletes.” Alaina said.
Project UNIFY chose Alaina based on her exemplification of the ideals and commitment that the Special Olympics promote, as well as her competitive nature as seen on American Idol.
Throughout her role as an ambassador she will help provide those competing with the knowledge, attitudes, and skills needed to for the various sports. This coaching is done in an effort to give those with intellectual disabilities a chance to be heard and included.
We are excited to hear about Lauren's experiences as an ambassador and mentor for the 2012 Special Olympics! Stay tuned to hear more.
