My Passion

I'm a part of a community who sees life a little differently.  We don't have the luxury of sweating the small stuff - and it's made my life more meaningful. I still love new clothes and hanging out with friends, and it's still important to me to ace my calculus test, but my illness has grown my empathy and created my passion.  Simply put, I want to help others. 

You are not here merely to make a living. You are here in order to enable the world to live more amply, with greater vision, with a finer spirit of hope and achievement. You are here to enrich the world, and you impoverish yourself if you forget the errand.
— Woodrow Wilson
