What are you passionate about?

I am passionate about music, human rights, and spreading love into every aspect of my life. I like to think that we are defined by the impact we have in other people’s lives, and I fully plan to connect to as many people as I possibly can no matter where I am. Whether that’s through a love of music or surrounding myself with people focused on issues I care about, forming personal connections between people is so rewarding to me. As long as you’re loving what you do and who you associate yourself with, every day has purpose.

What do you love about Tell Your Story? 

I love Tell Your Story because it reminds me that at the end of the day, every single one of us faces hardships in our lives, no matter what form that comes in. Listening to other people’s stories of triumph over personal struggles reminds me the importance of spreading love to the people around me, and encourages me to speak out about my own life. Every single person has their own story to tell, and Tell Your Story allows me to learn from others and pursue my own passions, despite what hurdles stand in the way.
