Bobby Ericson (Owner of We Cover Cheer)

I first met Andrea and her mom when I was doing a Google search trying to find custom bows that could be made for We Cover Cheer.  I ran across Andrea's Cheer Bowtique (andreascheerbowtique.com).  I messaged Andrea and asked about getting a sample bow made up.  From the get go I was very impressed with the customer service of Andrea and just in passing emails I got to talking to her mom as well.  I found out that Andrea and her family moved from California to Las Vegas to pursue Andrea's dream of competition cheerleading.  While doing competitive cheerleadering, Andrea and her mom make bows (lots of them) and Andrea is attending high school as well. 

After starting the Cheerleader of the Month feature in 2014, I knew I wanted to feature Andrea.  Normally I accept nominations for Cheerleader of the Month, but for January 2015 I wanted to nominate Andrea myself and reached out to her mom to get the ball rolling!  Congrats Andrea and thank you for all that you do! 

P.S. I also heard that Andrea's team got a full paid bid to Worlds at the American Grand competition.  Congrats to Andrea and her team!!!

Every moment being with Andrea is filled with laughter and happiness,  but my favorite memory would have to be rooming with her at Worlds 2014.

Andrea gave up her life in California and moved to Las Vegas to follow her dream and Cheer for the California All Stars Aces worlds' team.  Although she has a lot on her plate between school/homework, cheer practice and her very successful bow business, she hardly ever complains about not having a social life. I couldn't be more proud of the amazing young lady Andrea has become.
