_________________________________________________________________________________
Living with a rare disease has shaped who I am and what I am passionate

about. It has given me the opportunity to build my own resilience and

strength of character while discovering my passion for philanthropy and

advocacy. I am inspired by the ability to affect another person’s life in a

deeply meaningful way. I am equally inspired by the chance to fight for

equity and opportunity when I see injustice in the world. I feel honored to

have had so much support in creating and growing an organization that

gives so many young people the ability to serve others through leadership.

The “leaders of tomorrow” are making a difference TODAY!

I look forward to pursuing a law degree and continuing my journey of

advocating for others as a life path.
