Passions

Passion creates change in the world. My passions in life are suicide awareness and leadership. The two came to me during the hardest part of my life. In 8th grade, I tragically lost four family members within 3 months. I quickly realized that I needed to make a change in the world. Suicide Prevention became something very personal to me. I knew I never wanted any family to go through what mine did. It wasn’t easy to deal with and sometimes I still struggle with what occurred. I do absolutely best to be there for people who are struggling with suicide in anyway.

“Passion is a strong and barely controllable emotion.”

Leadership saved me when I was at my lowest point in life. It was the end of 8th grade and I just went through the motions everyday. I was detached from everything and everyone. I went to a meeting for high school Student Council and decided to join. I never knew that would change my entire life. It became my everything. I engulfed myself into making my school and community a better place. Being involved in MYLead and MASC/MAHS made me who I am today. I met so many amazing leaders that will all positively impact the world.
