Personal Moto: “Be the person who cares. Be the person who makes the effort, the person who loves without hesitation. Be the person who bares it all, the person who never shies away from the depth of their feelings, or the intensity of their hope. Be the person who believes in the softness of the world, in the goodness of other people, in the beauty of being open and untethered and trusting. Be the person who takes a chance, who refuses to hide. Be the person who makes people feel seen, the person who shows up. Be the person who really cares.” -The Minds Journal
