From the moment one of Darci’s tweets came across my Twitter feed, I knew I wanted to ask her to be on Sunshine Chasers! She’s experienced The Olympics in many different facets - including an Olympics-themed birthday party at age 7. So yeah, you’re gonna love her.
This was such a fun conversation to have and as a gal who loves The Olympics, I could have probably talked to Darci for a much longer time! Here’s a quick summary of our topics:
All things Olympics, of course!
How to support the Paralympics when it can seem forgotten
What it’s like to be a contestant on a reality TV show…as a teenager!
There are some links to some very important things we talked about shared below:
