I can personally relate to today’s Throwback Thursday photo. Like many other girls in growing up in the South, I too practiced the art of baton twirling. I was really just in it for the outfits though, never going as far as winning Nationals at Notre Dame University like Hilah Hadaway Williams, the cutie in this photo. “I love this photo because it captures the abundance of childhood hope and determination. I would get up every day at 6am and twirl for 2 hours before going to school. I would feel such glee each time my mother had to take me to the shoe store to buy a new pair of twirling shoes (signature white Keds) because the soles would develop holes,” recalls Hilah. Today, she’s a major power broker with Town Residential Real Estate, NYC. Want to see more awesome photos by Hilah? Join her thousands of followers on instagram @hilahbelle
