Several months ago I asked Maysun if she would rather go to Disney World or to go see Katy Perry live in concert. She chose Katy Perry and we went for it. We got the Prismatic Party package that included a VIP pre party and a bunch of free swag. I commissioned Camille Goodman to make her a dress and Kerry Anne Confer did her hair. We ended up with incredible seats down by the pinnacle of the stage. At one point in the show Katy Perry was looking to give away a pizza because she is currently gluten free. I saw her start to look in our direction and I raised my hand and pointed down towards Maysun. Low and behold Katy picked Maysun out of the crowd and invited her up on stage. Maysun was very courageous and went up on stage by herself to meet Katy Perry in front of over 20K people. As she is walking on stage you can hear Katy acknowledging how similar she and Maysun are. She even says they are like the same person. Now this is true in more ways than just fashion. Katy Perry prides herself on being who she is. Maysun is the same way.
Needless to say both Maysun and I were blown away by this encounter. And we were not the only ones. Almost immediately after Maysun got back to her seat another little girl came up to Maysun and wanted to have her picture taken with her. This was just the beginning. After the show we couldn't walk two feet without someone coming up to Maysun to compliment her, give her a hug and have their picture taken with her. When we got outside and were walking across the street to the parking lot and many people in the street started cheering for Maysun. It was a wild ride. She took in so much love and adoration. I know I am biased, but I truly don't think it could have happened to a better person. Maysun is an AWESOME kid who is very mindful of others and head / heart strong to be herself. I am so honored to have her as my daughter. Katy was as lucky to meet Maysun as Maysun was to meet Katy.
And yes Maysun really was the best dressed!
