    Victoria Piekut: The Story Behind the International Crown!

    in Entertainment

     I am 19 years old and live in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. I am full honors graduate of Norwin High School, graduating in the Top 10% of my class with a 4.0. For three years during high school, I studied Opera at Duquesne University’s City Music Center, and have been playing the piano for twelve years. I’m an opera singer, piano player, and professional model. I have had national modeling covers with Jo-Ann Fabrics, Fisher Price, Philip Pelusi, and have walked in fashion shows for Fleet Feet and Macy’s prom.


    I currently attend the University of Pittsburgh for a degree in Business, and will hopefully then go on to get my Masters in Opera Performance. My ambition is to one day open a music conservatory for kids who want to learn to play an instrument, sing, or just learn more about music in general. Music was such a big part of my childhood, and I want to be able to give every child the same opportunity to fall in love with music, as I have.


    In August of 2014, I won the title of 2014 National American Miss Pennsylvania Teen, and at Nationals placed 4th runner-up in Talent for singing opera, and placed 1st runner-up in the overall pageant. I then received the title of 2015 International Junior Miss Pennsylvania Teen and was lucky enough to become the 2015 International Junior Miss International Teen, as well as the IJM 2015 Teen Titleholder for Talent

    Guardian talk with Brad

    in Military

    JENNIFER ORN I have lived all over the country. I was born in MN and due to my father’s job (Federal Bureau of Prison’s) we moved around a lot. Virginia, California, Alabama, Pennsylvania and Tennessee are all on the list. When I was approximately 16, we ended up back in MN. I’ve also briefly lived in TX and OK as an adult. I received a softball scholarship out of high school to a DII school in MN. After being there for one semester, I realized it wasn’t for me. So, I enlisted in the MN Air National Guard. After completing AF basic training I completed the AF Security Forces Academy. A few months after completing all of my training I returned to my home station in St. Paul, MN. I was then sent to Desert Warfare Training with others from my unit and ultimately deployed for 6 months to Saudi Arabia.After I returned home, I continued my college education. I received my A.S. in Law enforcement and got hired on with a local police department (WI). I attended the WI State Law Enforcement Academy and I worked at that department for a little over 3 years. I ended up leaving that department to pursue a few other things. I ultimately ended up at another department in central MN. After being at this department for almost 2 years, I decided to resign.I am currently a professional dog trainer and animal behavior specialist. I attended a dog training school in TX and will be starting an internship at a dog training facility in another part of TX. I have already started my LLC (Liberty K9 LLC), and am just waiting to return home to get that going full swing.I have 3 awesome dogs, a wonderful boyfriend.


    Jason Granite I am a combat Army Veteran and a Purple Heart recipient.This summer I will be braving the Colorado Trail on a backpacking journey to raise money for Nine Line Foundation so they can improve the lives of our Veterans.I’ll be hiking 75 miles with 74 other participants coming from all over the United States

    Let's Talk Too! Author Yani

    in Books

    I'm your host


    Author Sharnel


     Guest


    Author Yani,


    She wrote her first novel when she was fifteen years old while attending University City High-School. What started out as just a short story to help her cope with the accidental and devastating murder of a friend, turned into a full length, 893 handwritten paged novel after being encouraged to continue writing more by her peers. Years later, A Thug’s Redemption along with its two sequels, became Amazon Best Sellers and featured in Yo! Raps Magazine. Yani had previously been known for her writing through her edgy poetry, which granted her an invitation to the Tri-State’s number 1 Hip-Hop and R&B radio station, Power 99FM, to recite her popular poem “Why Tyrone Can’t Read” in 2001. Since then, Yani has attended open mic nights, reciting her poetry throughout Philadelphia. Yani has been featured on numerous blogs and has made guest appearances on various blog-talk radio shows. She was also a featured author at the 2013 National Black Book Festival in Houston, Texas. Yani still resides in Philadelphia with her three children and is working on her sixth novel.
