I believe that there are not enough stories of hope today. So my goal is to change that. Every week, I'll be sharing stories of people making a difference and providing hope. If they inspire you to do something, then please let me know.

As for me, I only support positive causes. I'm pro-peace, pro-hope, pro-elevation of the human spirit. Please don't ask me to join any fights, or anti causes, because I don't want to give my energy to whatever you're fighting against. It might sound like semantics to you, but it's important to me.

Wild Fact About Me I'm learning to explore life through my body and not just my mind.
My Philosophy Feel what's right, then do it with your whole heart.
What Gives Me Hope People stepping up and doing the right thing, regardless of the cost. Dreamers, poets, artists of all types.
If I were Mayor, I'd make the world a better place by I'd make education the top priority because with education, people see possibilities rather than limitations. And possibilities bring hope.
