Here you will find pictures of the experience of my life!:
The night I was awarded in New York City as the winner of The Stan Lee Foundation logo design a Talenthouse Creative Invite! Roll drums please!

Until that day I used to think Manhattan could be an overwhelming city. I was wrong. To take a morning plane from my home (Dominican Republic) to New York City and be in NASDAQ Building on Times Square, Manhattan by 6 pm, rush hour, same day… meet a bunch of fascinating people and some celebrities, including the one and only, Stan "The Man" Lee, from whose hands I received a beautiful award!!!!… now that's overwhelming!.

Add few new friends before, tons of flash lights and hors d'oeuvres, and hundreds of new friends after being awarded, plus not speaking your native language… and you have the day of your life!. The cherry on top?: Seeing my logo illuminating full Times Square!!!. OMG!

I made some great new friends. I must confess I did not eat one single thing during the whole event. I simply couldn't. I was on automatic trying to absorb, understand, enjoy, live and keep breathing at the same time, without forgetting to be myself or worse... faint.

My apologies if some of the photos are a little blur or shaken, I swear I unpacked this camera that same night. Anyway, my friends, this is it: "The day I met Stan Lee"! Thank you thousand times to Talenhouse.com!!! Thanks Sarah for the pics while I was being awarded!

Oh yes! I made it!. From JFK to my hotel to Times Square!
As soon as i got out of the elevator to the 2nd floor of NASDAQ Building in TImes Square I noticed my logo projected on the floor. What an experience!.
The second floor of NASDAQ Building my logo was everywhere. In the back you can see Times Square. It was around 7 pm when i got in and people were arriving
My logo keeps popin' up everywhere

Amos Pizzey, Talenthouse.com Founder and Creative Director calls Mr. Stan Lee
to come up stage. Thank you Sarah for the pics while I was upthere!

This is the part where I couldn't believe how did I get so luchy!. Mr. Stan Lee
enters stage while I'm in shock

Impressive! Me and The Man!. What a cool, happy, contagious guy!
Amos Pizzey, Talenthouse's Creative Director and Founder , explains to Stan Lee
the reason why I was there. Same thing I was wondering!
Mr Stan Lee actually talking to me and reading the inscription on the award
(beautiful BTW). Me?. In complete shock!
This is the funny part, where Stan Lee ask me to talk, when I was not supposed to. Anyway the adrenaline was already pumping so I let the experience do the talking. Breathe in, breathe out and everything came up nicely! Flawless
Did I say Amos Pizzey is the epitome of cool? Well HE IS!. Period!
Well I thanked The Stan Lee Fundation and Talenthouse and I will never get tired of it! Ufff... what a night! The day after I was ready for ComiCon!. In the mean time, how about some shopping and sightseeing in my favorite city, Metropolis!. Let's start in the corner of 40 street, Midtown Comics!.
   

Thank you so much to all The Stan Lee Fundation & Talenthouse staff for their company, words and support. For making me feel like home while I was overwhelmed
with all this . Thanks from my heart!. I will treasure this experience for the rest of my life!
