What’s next for Sadie Robertson? After winning the hearts of countless admirers in the latest season of Dancing with the Stars, the 17-year-old charmer is headed to meet her fans at The Washington Auto Show®.

The star of A&E’s cult hit Duck Dynasty will be appearing on Friday, January 23 at The Washington Auto Show, where she will spread her message to “live original.”

Robertson is, obviously, not your average 17-year-old – and as she’s embraced her originality, she’s encouraged her peers to do the same with her personal motto and brand: “Live Original.” A motivational speaker, Robertson spends her summers on church mission trips and working at a Christian youth camp where she urges kids to “live original” by learning to express themselves with confidence.

Carrying on the entrepreneurial spirit of her family, Robertson has imbued her philosophy into several business ventures, collaborating with fashion designerSherri Hill on a signature Live Original line of “daddy-approved” prom dresses and crafting a Live Original line of school supplies. At the end of October, she released her first book, which is already a bestseller: “Live Original: How the Duck Commander Teen Keeps It Real and Stays True to Her Values.”

In addition to these many creative enterprises, Robertson is a devoted athlete. She plays high school tennis and basketball and is ranked sixth in the state ofLouisiana for javelin throwing.

The largest public show in D.C., The Washington Auto Show opens to the public on Friday, January 23 and runs through Sunday, Feb. 1. A Washington winter tradition, the show boasts entertainment for the whole family with contests, giveaways and celebrity sports and TV stars.

Produced by the Washington Area New Automobile Dealers Association (WANADA), The Washington Auto Show features more than 700 new makes and models from more than 42 global manufacturers.
