With dedication and the determination to pursue positive and healthy relationships, I continuously challenge myself to promote a safe and welcoming environment for all those who I come into contact with. My aspiration is that whoever I connect with feels cared for, encouraged, and supported. Helping youth grow to their utmost truest potential is my passion, which is the driving force to why I continue to pursue my education in attaining a Masters of Counseling. I love being a part of this community and making an impact each and every day. Though my life has taken me through various obstacles, I have never forgotten who I truly am, and that is a person who accepts the daily challenges no matter how difficult they may seem, maintains confidence in myself that I am able to overcome and achieve anything, remain motivated even in my shortcomings, learn from my mistakes, attain wisdom, and grow from each experience.
