What are you passionate about?

I am passionate about mentoring and investing in relationships of people that are younger than me. All my life I have been an only child and wanted nothing more than to have a younger brother, but it wasn't in the plan obviously. So through this desire, I constantly am seeking ways to help people younger than me and trying to be a big brother to others.

What do you love about Tell Your Story?

I love Tell Your Story completely because of the mission and people. We all can get so trapped by the ways of the world that always leads to money or what other people want, but I love that TYS encourages others to pursue what they are truly passionate about. To be surrounded by a group of people that also fell this way is truly a blessing.

What are you passionate about? 

I am passionate about serving kids! Children offer such a unique perspective on life and I believe they can teach us so much about the world. I am most passionate about serving kids who have special needs or long-term illnesses. These kids need someone on their side to fight for them when they can't. I desire to one day serve these kids through the medical field and encourage them in their passions so that they too can do what they love!

What do you love about Tell Your Story?

I love Tell Your Story because it gives me a unique, tight knit group of people that encourage and inspire me to do what I love. They bring the best out of me and push me in ways that I haven't experienced before. They inspire me with their words, experiences, and struggles. This community makes you feel known and heard, which in college, is the best thing to have!  .

What are you passionate about?

I am passionate about people — knowing people, loving people, and learning from people. I am passionate that life can be found in the ordinary. Above all, I am passionate about helping the unseen feel known and loved. I believe that investing in a life that builds others up far exceeds any amount of money or “success” the world could offer. It can be easy to believe that life is measured by how successful we become or whether or not we find the approval of those around us, but I believe true life is found in moments of laughter, growth, and community. I hope that wherever life takes me, I cling to the truth that people are important, their stories are worth hearing, and they are always worth my time and attention.

What do you love about Tell Your Story?

I love Tell Your Story because it has allowed me to constantly learn, grow, and be challenged to live more, love more, and do more. By listening to speakers share their stories of how they overcame adversity and pursued their passions individually, I was given the opportunity to take bits and chunks of wisdom on a weekly basis and apply them to my everyday life here at Texas A&M. I have learned to be bold, to persevere, and to use what I have been given to serve those around me. Overall, Tell Your Story has instilled a confidence within me that my life and passions are important and worth going after. It has shown me the significance of living a life of passionate pursuit rather than simply being another number.
