Everywhere I go, I start the conversation with Hello, I'm Kimberly from Mississippi. So you can imagine, how proud I was to open up this issue of Uptown magazine and see the words Mississippi-born in front of my name. I am more than proud. And what I've found, is that there are many fantastic people all over the world who share my Mississippi roots and pride. Your children, when they are pursuing their dreams need to know that there are people out there who come from where they come from. And that where they come from matters little in comparison to where they can go.
So, I want to shout to Mississippi and say thanks for everything Mississippi has given me.
Thanks to my family - all 10,000 of you
Thanks to Lafayette Co. Schools- Where Champions are made - year after year
Thanks to my church families both in Abbeville and Hattiesburg Mississippi
Thanks to the Ladies of Delta Sigma Theta- MUNU Chapter - Where Excellence is standard
Thanks to my Friends from all over the state, who come from small towns and county roads and who are now doing amazing things to shape the future of our country.
Thank you - I couldn't be more proud!
