This tiny little blog in this vast blogosphere truly surprises me every day. Last month, Shannon Ford reached out to be an IT Girl. Yes, on this blog. I was flabbergasted that Miss United States even knew about my blog!
While I don’t know Shannon intimately (like my other IT Girls), Shannon was crowned MISS UNITED STATES 2011 so how could I pass? Shannon is also a Miami local and an advocate for Celiac Disease (a lifelong illness that requires her to maintain a gluten-free diet) through her platform, 1 in 133: Raising Awareness for Celiac Disease. She’s also a Miami Dolphins Ambassdor. Talk about an overachiever! I kid. Without further ado, read on for the blond bombshell’s IT Girl Stats.
