Jennifer Goodman Linn You Fearless

A Busy Week

The past few weeks have been filled with a ton of great stuff! On March 24th, I was awarded with 9 other women to be New Jersey Woman of the Year! The award was an empowerment award presented to the woman in NJ who empowers others. You might wonder how we pulled that off given that I have not lived in New Jersey for 20 years but leave it to my publicist to make it happen (aka super mom). The award ceremony was held at Drumthwacket which is the name of the Governor's Mansion in Princeton, New Jersey. I was very touched to receive this award but even more touched by the hard work that went into getting me nominated for this award. My rock star publicist (can you believe she works for free?!?) wrote a really beautiful essay about me and Dr. Maki as well as good friends, former bosses and colleagues all contributed. It's so gratifying to know that I make such a difference in the lives of those I love. And I really loved that my grandmother made the trip and got to see me accept the award since I have learned so much about empowerment by watching her over the years.

And given that Passover is around the corner, I can use the phrase "Dayenu" at this time because it is very appropriate.
Dayenu means "and if this were not enough"...yes, there is more!

After I won the award, I flew out to Los Angeles the next morning to attend my very first Nickelodeon
Kid's Choice Awards! For those of you who wonder what I do in my new job, the following pictures will present you with a very "sexy" view.
I schmooze, meet celebrities and try not to get slimed! The event was truly amazing! It is so great to see the brand that you work on "come to life" in such a creative way. Jack Black was the host and he was so, so funny! Afterwards I got to hang out in the VIP tent which was supercool! Many of my colleagues have worked at Nickelodeon for a long time so they were laughing at how excited I was to see it all come to life!

For those of you who are NOT "in the loop", that's Harrison Ford and Orlando Bloom getting slimed and pictures of me hanging out with Abigail Breslin (Little Miss Sunshine, Nim's Island) and Emile Hirsch (Into the Wild, Speed Racer, The Girl Next Door). Quddus was there as well...he is the host of the new Nickelodeon dance show called Dance on Sunset. Oh, and there's Miley Cyrus and Rihanna :) Gotta go shmooze :)
