2013 Special Olympics Rhythmic Gymnastics

When the coach of the Dothan Divas Rhythmic Gymnasts approached me about being the team’s hair and make-up artist for the 2013 Special Olympics games, I could not have been more excited! I even got to help them warm up. The team of twelve girls began practicing for the games when school began.

Although they all come from different schools in different cities and have different disabilities, they all have one goal in mind….to bring home the gold! I was so impressed with their artistic ability and level of discipline. All of the participants did such a wonderful job! It was such a blessing to watch them excel at something they clearly LOVE!

The girls loved their pink, sparkly eye make-up!

Suzie always has such a shining personality!

Kendall and Suzie were anxiously awaiting their performance.
