Children’s National Patient Teaches Sabrina Carpenter How To Floss!

Make sure you grab your dancing shoes because it’s always a party when Sabrina Carpenter visits Seacrest Studios!

Sabrina made her ninth stop at a Seacrest Studio while visiting Children’s National in Washington, D.C. A loud roar of cheering patients and fans welcomed Sabrina to the studio. She was prepared to give tons of hugs, laughs, smiles and encouragement to our patients and families.

As a Ryan Seacrest Foundation Ambassador, Sabrina mentioned that she loves visiting Seacrest Studios because she loves meeting the patients and these visits always brighten her day.

Sabrina shared some fun “secrets” about herself including that she loves to write and draw, that she can’t cook, she would love to learn Japanese, she has never been a babysitter and that she loves to indulge her sweet tooth by tasting a slice of chocolate cake in every city she visits!

Our patients definitely weren’t nervous or star struck as they couldn’t wait for Sabrina to answer their questions! Many patients asked Sabrina how she got her start as an actress, what her favorite part of filming was and whether she was a fan of the original series “Boy Meets World” before she was cast in the Disney Channel show “Girl Meets World.”

 Sabrina expressed her love for musicals and that she hopes to one day be in one! While visiting the patients at Seacrest Studios at Children’s National, Sabrina played a fun game where we asked her to create her own musical by choosing roles including choreographer, director, and even actors and actresses!

While playing the musical game, we learned that Sabrina could do the “The Worm” and that she couldn’t “Floss.” However, Sabrina soon learned how to “Floss” as one awesome fan showed her step-by-step on how to do the dance perfectly. We’re not surprised that Sabrina was able to pick it up so quickly!

Sabrina then gave our patients such inspiring advice about going after their dreams and reminding them to continue to spread positivity everywhere they go.

Thank you so much for visiting us in Seacrest Studios at Children’s National! You were such an inspiration and we can’t wait to see what the future holds for you! We hope to see you soon!

RSF Ambassador Nick Jonas Visits Seacrest Studios in Atlanta!

Ryan Seacrest Foundation Ambassador and Seacrest Studios favorite, Nick Jonas, returned to Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta to visit patients before his performance at iHeart Radio’s annual Jingle Ball. The singer, who has visited Seacrest Studios Atlanta many times, is always up for whatever shenanigans we throw at him.

This time it happened to be a fun Q&A game called “Only Your Bro’ Knows”. Of course, without his brothers Kevin, Joe or Frankie present, there’s no way of knowing how “accurate” Nick’s answers really were! He’s always a good time and we can’t thank him enough for spreading some cheer at Seacrest Studios!

 

 

Sabrina Carpenter Performs Her Newest Song “Why” at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital!

Recap written by Studio Intern: Isabelle Hanson

Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center witnessed just why Sabrina Carpenter is the Ryan Seacrest Foundation’s celebrity ambassador during her visit to the studio. Sabrina’s personable and sweet personality shined through as patients interviewed her before she performed her newest and favorite song, “Why”.

An actress herself, Sabrina said she hopes to act with Emma Stone in the future, one of the many actors on her growing list. But, her true celebrity crush as a young girl was Zac Efron.

When Lauren asked the inspiration behind her song, “Thumbs”, she said we all go through times where we feel we are not living the life we want to, but we must start listening to our own voice.

We learned Sabrina would be living her best life if sweets were at the top of the food pyramid, after patient Jerra asked how she would redesign the pyramid. An overwhelming majority of the studio audience agreed to having a sweet tooth, too. She may eat kale salad for lunch, but goes for the chocolate cake right after.

“When one door closes, another door opens,” is Sabrina’s life motto. She said working hard while staying optimistic is important. “There are so many times where things will happen and we don’t know the reason why. And then a year later we’ll look back and we know the reason why. And it’s because it was making room for something else to happen that’s better for you and that was meant for you,” said Sabrina.

Thanks, Sabrina, for visiting Cincinnati Children’s Seacrest Studio and supporting the Ryan Seacrest Foundation. We appreciate you and look forward to seeing you again soon!
