1. Justin Bieber Wins Big and Takes 4 Awards at The American Music Awards 2010.
At the age of just 16 years Justin Bieber, he wins 4 American Music Awards; he is the youngest singer to win them.
2. USA President Barack Obama Signed The Unemployment Insurance Extension.
President Barack Obama makes history by giving back a relief to the people that elected him to win the presidency and because he wants the economy to come back to regular status.
3. Extra Mario Lopez’s Private Rooftop Birthday Party Benefiting Rally For Kids.
Controversy can sometimes make you or take you; in this case this event was advertised as Mario Lopez’ Birthday Bash, but things went in different directions and later changes were made that created a big controversy.
4. 2010 2nd Annual Hollywood Brazilian Film Festival.
Covering this event was worthy because it was classy and the people who came were well known in the Latin Community.
5. Beverly Hills Mayor Jimmy Delshad presents Proclamation to David Harrison Levi.
Another controversy in covering this event; people reached out to us and called us many names. They thought Mr. Levi did not deserve this high recognition from Mayor Delshad. People, Mr. David Harrison Levi is not hurting anyone, he is helping the community by raising awareness on Cancer. At least he is educating people and not doing any bad criminal acts. Just join forces and accept the he is raising awareness that Cancer is a killer and I can tell you that many of us will die of Cancer, Liver Damage or AIDS/HIV.
6. Skin Trade DocuFilm Exposes What Fashion Really Costs.
This movie really shows that the next time you buy fur to dress you up or meat, think twice. The poor animals are killed very badly alive while they take away their skin and then some of us buy the fur and food to eat. So People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) and other animals activists are doing the right thing by educating us that it is not right to kill the animals in a brutal way and then make money off them.
7. 11th Latin GRAMMY Awards Nominees Announced in Hollywood.
This event we were invited to cover in Las Vegas, but you know driving in a town that is not familiar is a risk but all the news about the event it was all over.
8. Pamela Bach-Hasselhoff Makes Her New Vision Shake at Millions of Milkshakes.
After all the controversies on her drunk driving and other issues, she stepped up and got her own Millions of Milkshake which everyone wants to have. Hint: just know the right people and be famous to get one. Ms. Bach-Hasselhoff is somebody I grew up watching on BayWatch with her ex-husband David Hasselhoff.
9. Pink and Cesar Milan Come Together for Puppy Mill Awareness Day.
When recording artists such as Pink and Fawn raise awareness to protect innocent animals, this is something great for our society. By being active and giving back to the community, this is the best example for our next generations.
10. Pamela Anderson makes her all-vegan Milkshake at celebrity hot spot Millions of Milkshakes.
Very sweet lady, cares about her fans and animals. She is involved with PETA as well and she deserves her own Million of Milkshake. By donating proceeds, this is the best win situation for the organization and Ms. Anderson.

About The Kierrah Foundation:
The Kierrah Foundation was established to help young women who have been adversely affected by being placed in the foster care system. The unique needs of these young women are underrepresented and underserved. The Kierrah Foundation is set up to be a multilevel support system for these young women who often are estranged from adult family members and must navigate the path to adulthood alone. The Foundation seeks to build their self-esteem and to squash the rampant self-doubt that makes these young women feel hopeless, disenfranchised and on the path to nowhere. The Foundation also offers women a unique opportunity to share valuable life experiences with upwardly mobile individuals who can encourage them to face the challenges ahead.
