A Hero Award
 
On January 19, the eve of the Presidential Inauguration, I traveled to Washington, DC to receive an American Hero Award at the All American Inaugural Ball. I passed The Capital, all lit up in the night, as I was driven to the Ball at the Hyatt Regency Capital Hill.

The beauty of the Capital and the enormity of what was about to happen was suddenly overwhelming. 

The Hero award I was about to receive honored my work in education and advocacy for those living with traumatic brain injuries. In addition to my motivational speeches and workshops, the award

committee recognized the impact of my book, and its powerful
message of never giving up or giving in.  




When I arrived at the hotel I was overcome once again by the hundreds of people, the noise, and the music. Fortunately, my handler was waiting for me at the top of the escalator and helped me down into the crowd, and through the lobby, to the VIP room. In that room I met astronaut Buzz Aldrin who was receiving an All American Hero Lifetime achievement award.

Fellow honorees included Alvaro Fernandez who was praised for his groundbreaking work in advancing applied neuroscience and neuro-technology to help those with TBI.

Alvaro Fernandez presented the award to Jennifer.

As CEO of Sharp Brains, Mr. Fernandez brings together the best research minds, technical minds, and business minds to help further innovation within the neuroscience industry.

When I stood on the stage, waiting for my name to be called, I had that familiar rush of excitement that I used to feel as I rode into the ring as an equestrian competitor. When Mr. Fernandez presented the award to me, I truly felt that I had won the blue ribbon.

One of the most exciting things about this award is that it provides new  opportunities for me to reach even more people, and to collaborate with others who believe in the brain's ability to heal.

I am so honored and excited that I received this Hero award. The evening for me was a dream come true. I decided, as I was standing on the stage, that I would work harder than ever to bring my message to more brain injured people.
