"One thing I am passionate about is simply people. I believe everyone has a story and a history that makes them who they are. I love being able to serve and do what I can to bring light to what can sometimes be a dark world. My goal in life is to always make a positive impact on everyone that I come in contact with. I am also currently taking classes to get one step closer to my dream of one day being a counselor."
