Keltic Dreams win President Obama’s heart


Dancing in The East room with these incredible children who constantly believed that they could do it, who never gave up on the dream, some of whom came from their middle schools and High schools to come to Irish dance practice every day was one of the greatest moments of my life.

Meeting with the President and First Lady will forever be the perfect moment in our minds. I could not have asked for more as a teacher for these children. It was the experience of a lifetime and I will forever be grateful for all our supporters, all the people who constantly gave kind words of encouragement since I founded the program six years ago. Those kind words constantly remind me how special The Keltic Dreams are and really encourage me to do the best I can with the children when we hit those many obstacles along the way.

May this story remind you that anything is possible, never ever give up on a dream, Keltic or otherwise because as I constantly remind the children that with hard extreme work and believing you can do it, you really can accomplish anything."
