“We have the opportunity to live each day to its fullest and I am driven to do just that. Not in a selfish way, but in a way that strives to improve the world I live in and the lives of those around me.
I am motivated by my Faith in Christ, my family and my friends.
I am inspired by those around me that have conquered challenges in their own life and continue pressing on with a positive and optimistic attitude.
I am thankful that through my efforts I can do my part to make this broken world a better place. I have always felt, even from a very young age that we are put on this earth to leave it better than we found it and to contribute to the greater good.
I am moved by music. I love listening to it, playing it and feeling it. One of my favorite songs currently is a classic from years ago…. ‘I Just Want to Celebrate” by Rare Earth. Give it a listen.”
