Back to School! - Amy Paffrath

It’s been so long since I’ve updated you guys sorry for the delay!
I recently went back to my Alma mater, the University of Missouri to speak for a group of aspiring entertainment journalists and to Emcee a film contest. It was a completely amazing and fulfilling experience. I felt so honored to be invited back and impart my knowledge of an industry that is still new to me. It was so cool to have eager studenst look up to me the way I looked at Linda Bell Blue (Exec producer of Entertainment Tonight) when she visited my Broadcast 1 class. I only hope that I can continue to inspire and help people achieve their dreams. I made my come true and I’m creating and fulfilling new ones every day.
The film contest which was sponsored by Apple was called iLife. It was really cool to see all the freshman made flicks and Emcee the show. I decided to do a rap to kick off the show in style and I think it went over very well! I hope to have video shortly! The winning video just happened to be called the Mizzou Rap! How funny, check it out here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zDLPwkOlwO0
During my visit, I also got the chance to visit my papa. It was so great to see him. He was recently diagnosed with MS and is now living in wonderful facility that makes his treatment and everyday life so much easier. He is really happy there. While I was there, I did an impromptu performance for the patients along with the fabulous Drew Seeley and the amazing Brittany Paffrath. It was so much fun and really brightened their day.
I’ll be heading back to Missouri very soon for Christmas and I can’t wait to reconnect with family and friends. We will definitely revisit and do a Christmas show at Town and Country and are planning a visit to Barnes Children’s Hospital to spread some holiday cheer! I encourage everyone to get out and find a way to give back this holiday season. MUAH! Happy Holidays!
