    Sasha Cohen Visits Children's Hospital


    This is a very nice "article" Sasha wrote about visiting kids at Connecticut Children's Medical Center.

    Yes, that was nice, but I have never read an article by anyone (famous) telling us about their hospital visits (or charity work). I just find it a bit odd. I am not criticizing her, but I am a bit confused as to why this was posted.

    <span style="color:red;font-family:georgia;font-size:small;">It's posted on her own web site. Sasha knows she has a lot of fans, many of whom read her web site regularly, and perhaps she feels this might inspire others to volunteer their time in hospitals or other community service endeavors. She obviously took a lot of time to write this herself and is trying to make a positive difference in people's lives. Good for her!</span>

    Sasha writes pretty well, don't you think? Good use of colorful adjectives. I liked it. I liked her sister's poems, too.

    I certainly agree. Sasha's writing was very good. Maybe sometime after she is finished with skating she should look into journalism. Looks like she has a real flare.

    She and her sister could almost pass for twins. Uncanny resemblance.

    Re: Sasha Cohen Visits Children's Hospital


    Pardon me, Sasha fans, but I find it pretty self-serving for Ms. Cohen to post her visit to the children's hospital. She wouldn't have made that visit unless it would do her some good. Honestly, in nearly every Sasha Cohen interview I've ever read or heard, the emphasis is on Sasha, Sasha, Sasha.
    Certainly, she is a wonderful figure skater, but she is also totally, completely, 100 percent focused on herself, plain and simple. :x

    What would have impressed me would be if Sasha had made that hospital visit and NOT WRITTEN ABOUT IT and not given herself a pat on the back.

    The late Princess of Wales used to visit hospitals at night, often with Princes William and Harry, at which time they would spend several hours with the patients. None of these visits -- and there were PLENTY of them -- reached the media.

    Oh, I didn't feel that way at all, SkateFan. I thought that the focus of Sasha's report was on the children, not on herself. To me, she was just reporting on an experience that was special to her, as one might in a journal entry.

    SkatFan - That's kind of how I felt, too. I just thought that if certain other skaters had done that, they would have been ripped apart on most skating boards (I have not seen the link posted anywhere else). I am not saying your reasons are why Sasha did it, but it's the first thing that came to my mind. Glad to see this board is much more openminded.

    Sasha keeps a journal and I for one as a huge fan, am glad that she shares her stories with us.

    Isn´t it generally so that in interviews the emphasis is on the person who is being interviewed?

    And on this article written by Sasha herself the emphasis was not on Sasha, but on the visit, in my opinion.
