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.
