How’s It Driving Gwen?

Remember that free car giveaway? Last spring, I got to do one of the coolest things on my journey and that was hand over the keys for the car giveaway winner, Gwen. I know you’ve all been curious as to how she’s doing. Well, I’ve got an update for you! She has made some big changes in her life including moving back to California. Let me tell y’all, I was holding my breath when I heard that. Could you imagine how terrible it would have been if that car broke down on the way?! They both made it like champs! While in California, I got to get to know her and I couldn’t be more proud. What am I saying? I’ll let you hear it from her in her own words….

I’ve been home for two months now. I traveled 2,500 miles from Florida to California in my car that I was blessed with winning. I have had so many opportunities that I have been able to accept because of having my own car. I was able to move all of my belongings to California and saved a large amount of money instead of buying a plane ticket or renting a Uhaul. When I got home I was able to find two jobs and enroll in college for the fall semester. I can make it to work and school on my own and use this blessing I have gotten to safely get to where I need to go to fulfill my dreams of getting an education and becoming a successful business owner one day. Since I have been home I have also had the pleasure of getting to know Muffy on a personal level and not only has she changed my future but she has become an amazing friend and part of my family. She is an impeccable role model and is someone I highly look up to. She has taught me one very important thing and that is to know what you want and do whatever it takes to make it happen. I didn’t just get a car, I got job opportunities, a chance to better my education and my future, and I also got a life long friend and family member. In 5 years I will be a successful business owner living my dream and doing what I am passionate about and there is no way that I could ever thank Muffy enough for giving me that. My life is coming together and making my goals and dreams a possibility in the near future! 

         Thank you for the blessing!
Sincerely,  Gwen

I’m not crying! You’re crying! I think I speak for all of us when I say, we can’t wait to see where the world takes our little Gwen!
