The KCK taking their show on the road MSG Photos HOUSTON, TX February 15, 2006 -- Hi! I’m Jaida Benjamin and I’m 11 years old. This is my first year as a Knicks City Kid! We have gotten so many opportunities this year...in fact, we’re on our way right now to Houston, Texas to dance at the NBA All-Star Weekend, the best opportunity of all! Right now, we’re on the plane, I’m sitting in my chair and everyone is walking around, taking pictures and talking to each other. Everyone seems to be more excited than tired. I can’t wait to get off this plane so I can explore Texas (since I’ve never been there) and see the hotel! I am very nervous, but excited at the same time. I can’t imagine how many other children would love to have this opportunity, which is why I am so grateful to even be sitting on this plane. I am soooo psyched! I can’t stop thinking about how many people will come to the NBA All-Star Game, and how many people the KCK will be dancing in front of. I just hope that this weekend is fun, exciting, energetic, and positive for everyone!
