What are you passionate about?

I am passionate about relationships with people. Every person that I encounter can offer a new perspective or insight into something that I could be clueless about. Drawing that character out of people via conversation is what excites me. It is awesome to uncover things previously not known about someone.

What do you love about Tell Your Story?

Tell Your Story has been incredible in not only meeting exceptional people through the host program, but also through the encouragement and perseverance of the speakers that have come to speak on behalf of their passions. It is an event that encourages me to persevere through trials and hardship to pursue things that I am truly passionate about.

What are you passionate about?: 

I am passionate about friends and family.  They drive me to be the best person I can be in every aspect of life, while I try my best to do the same for them.  Motivating at any time possible and helping through hard times.  My desire for my family and friends to strive to achieve their wildest dreams came from my last year being a part of Tell Your Story’s host program.

What do you love about Tell Your Story?:  

I love Tell Your Story Leadership Forum because it drives students to follow their dreams.   Many students in college are not pushed to follow their dreams or are following the directions of their parents, but not following their own passions.  Tell Your Story Leadership Forum inspires students to find their passions and inspire them that nothing is impossible if you put your heart behind it.  Last but not least I love the people you are able to meet through Tell Your Story, both the friends I made in the Host Program and the incredible speakers at meetings and forum.

What are you passionate about?: 

My list of passions runs wide from just doing anything outside to live music to dancing to really getting to know others to sketchy taco stands to laughing to being present with my friends to the Dallas Stars and to so much more. This list is always changing and growing as I continue to learn about myself and uncover new passions as I am introduced to them. The discovery of new passions most definitely keeps me busy but it is the best kind of busy. In another sense, I am passionate about making those around me feel important in a way that they realize their value. Often times it’s easy to feel left unnoticed, and I desire to encourage others and reveal to them their own admirable qualities that they might not have noticed in themselves.   

What do you love about Tell Your Story?:  

I love Tell Your Story because of the community that it provides. It is a small group of people that you fall in love with so easily because each person offers his or her own dynamic. They are the kinds of people that propel you to want and to seek and to grow and to lead. It is the kind of organization that real, authentic relationships form from easy conversation and genuine time spend with each other. In Tell Your Story, the friendships see no bounds and everyone deserves a community like that. To put it plain and simple, the people are just so cool!
