Comcast Cares Day in Highlands, NJ.
It was a beautiful day in Highlands, New Jersey. I had a wonderful time supporting my hometown for Comcast Cares Day and the ground breaking of The Sandy Ground: Where Angels Play. This playground is located at Veteran’s Park, celebrating the life of Daniel Barden. Daniel was one of the 20 beautiful children at Sandy Hook Elementary taken from us too soon. Here is a video of Daniel singing. My heart goes out to all the families affected by this horrific tragedy.

As Mrs. Highlands U.S., I was honored to share an interview with the Today Show in reference to my platform, “Restoring The Shore: Hope For Highlands”, my community and the upcoming Mrs. New Jersey United States pageant. It was great to see my small community come together, supporting one another during this difficult time. This has only made up stronger than ever! We are Jersey Strong, God Bless!!! ♥

Today was one hell of a day! As I attended the filming of the LIVE! Kelly and Michael show, I was chosen to be today’s Trivia Dancer! I absolutely rocked that stage & brought the Jersey to NYC dancing the morning away!!! (January 9, 2013)
It was unfortunate what happened with the ferry crash this morning. Those that watched this show were interrupted by this horrific breaking news.First and foremost many prayers go out to those that were injured along with their families and I pray for a quick recovery. Although this event that occurred was unfortunate, I strongly hope they enforce all passengers to remain seated until the ferry is docked!!!
To continue on with my story, later on from my way home as the ferry docked Eyewitness News was there and asked to interview me about the crash although I was not on the ferry that crashed. After mentioning to them that I was on the show as the trivia dancer they got the video and aired it during tonight’s Eyewitness News and right along with my interview, it was AWESOMEEE!!!!!!

ABC was kind enough to send me a copy of my Triva Dance debut on January 9, 2013. Thank you Kelly & Michael and the entire ABC staff!!!!

As many of you know, Melissa was the 2011 WRAT Rock Girl for 95.9 The Rat. Check out her exclusive video interview by The RAT’s Uncle Leo as she prepares for her very first enduro race. She seemed a little nervous but Melissa has hit up the track many times at Raceway Park but this was her first circuit race.
(Melissa, ready to hit the track!)
Keep your eyes peeled for an audio interview & photos about “My Life” on Fios1. During my interview, we talked about my life growing up in Highlands, NJ. You will also see photos of me as a little girl, especially ones where I was in dancing school (Yes I loved to dance, heck I still do hahaha).
As many of you are aware, I grew up in a small town along the Jersey Shoreline called Highlands. I’ve always had SO MUCH energy as a child and loved being in front of the camera whether it was for taking photos or my mother taking home video footage with our camcorder.
At age 15, my father enrolled me into Barbizon Modeling School in Red Bank and the rest is history. Check it out ONLY on Fios1.
