                Priscilla Prather cheered for the Cowboys during the 1990-1991 season where she performed on the legendary Texas Stadium field. Originally from Mesquite, Texas, Priscilla grew up admiring and idolizing the Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders; however, in her mind, becoming one was just a dream and not something she thought she would ever actually be able to attain. That all changed one day in 1985 when a high school friend made her dreams come true and successfully made the team. Priscilla stated, “This inspired me that I could

Prior to Jessica’s time with the Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders, she lived a VERY full dance dream. She considers herself to be a gypsy, and actively chased every dream she had when it came to dance. Originally from Albuquerque, NM, Jessica accepted a full-ride scholarship to Pace University in New York City, where she ended up getting a BA in Musical Theater and Dance. If that isn’t impressive enough, she continued her education after college, going to graduate school at Pace University where she studied Media Communications and

Bethany Tinderholt was a Dallas Cowboys Cheerleader for two incredible seasons and still stays involved today.

Dear Younger Jada, I want to tell you that there is nothing in life that you will not overcome. You are going to go through good times and bad but remember that you are strong and to always turn to God. Many things in life are going to happen that are completely out of your control, but it is up to you to see the silver lining in everything that comes your way. I know you feel like you are different from a lot of people around you,

  Dear 7-year-old Kat,  You may not realize it now, but what you are going through is needed. I know you may be sad because you cannot live with Mommy anymore; but moving into Oma (grandma) and Papooh’s (grandpa) house will be the best thing that's ever happened to you. Mommy is working more jobs, so you can say, “YES!” to all the opportunities this world will throw your way. Don’t grow up too fast, slow down and have fun where you are. Oma and Papooh love raising you

Dear Younger Self, I hope that you wake up every day knowing just how amazing you are! No, seriously you are amazing! You will accomplish so much in a short period. Life will not always be kind, but you will persevere and conquer every obstacle that you encounter. I want to let you know that you are so much stronger than you think. “You’re playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you.”

Dear Younger Chandi, I know times are uncertain right now and you feel like you are a small fish in a big pond but keep your head up. I know you have already had ups-and-downs in your life, but you will overcome everything that life throws at you. Soon, you will be proud of the strong, independent young woman you have become. Right now, you are a young girl in a very big world. You are in ballet, dancing your little heart out. It is your happy place.

  Darian, Being a black woman in America won’t be easy. It will come with fear and sadness; and you’ll find that sometimes doing everything right still might not be enough because of the color of your skin. Being told that you’re “pretty for a black girl” and that you’re either “too white to be black” or “too black to be white” will be something you hear quite often growing up in a predominately white elementary and middle school. It can be hard to stop letting other people change

Dear Ashlee, Who knew that your natural tendency to lead the group out for dance battles at recess, talent shows, and all things entertainment would be the first chapter? Who knew that you would be who I think about whenever I start to doubt myself and my abilities? Three-year-old Ashlee loved to be with the big kids, praise dancing down the Baptist church aisles, with so much conviction. Who knew that the same three-year-old would make the choice to confess Christ and be baptized? You always knew what

  Dear Sydney, Oh, how time has flown! Believe it or not you are 26 years old now and living amidst a global pandemic! Crazy right?!?! I am writing you now because you will need tough skin and grace to navigate life as a Black woman in America. The experience of being both female and an African-American presents you with a specific vantage point that only other Black women can fully understand. I am not telling you this to discourage you, but rather to encourage you to embrace your
