What an amazing summer I have had!
Academically, my summer began by taking the MCAT and is ending with my applying to medical school. The application process is a year process of primary apps, secondary apps then an interview round. I will thus be entering medical school in the fall of 2012..ill keep ya posted!

Besides that I moved out of LA this summer! I had lived there for 8-9years and this year I packed...well mostly sold...all my stuff and moved back out east. I have been back and forth between NYC, the Hamptons and Maryland all summer and I am loving it.

I got a chance to attend NY Mercedes Benz Fashion week!!It was a dream come true! I got a sneak peek at the spring 2012 collections and you can see my experience on the new YouTube video I just posted on my channel www.YouTube.com/NanaMeriwether! I made friends with one of the hottest designers Max Azria who designs for BCBG and Herve Leger! He invited me to a dinner and 2 events he threw and I had the best time mingling with New York's fashion elite! He and his wife are so nice and their work is brilliant!

I have been meeting so many great people in NYC and the DC area and I know this fall is bound to be a very memorable one filled with events anddddd im running for Miss Maryland in about a month!! so excited! Tomorrow is actually orientation and I get to meet all the stunning girls:) Competition weekend is October 28-30.
In November, I will be taking a trip to Southern Africa to check on some of the amazing projects The Meriwether Foundation has going on. We are about to open a clinic and the preschool we were opening in Zitha Village is now officially open! Not only are we providing classes for children, we have implemented a nutritional program where the students can get meals that include vegetables and goods from the organic garden we also started! I can't wait to see the kids and brainstorm new projects for Zitha Village and the other rural towns we support in now 6 countries! If you would like more information on how you can help please email Missions@MeriwetherFoundation.org....you can also check out my YouTube Channel for a video highlighting some of the projects we support.
