Bio

Verna Myers once said, “Diversity is being invited to the party; Inclusion is being invited to dance.” The aforementioned quote is by far my favorite quote and accurately reflects not only a personal experience I had but the mindset I strive to have. At my high school I had the privilege of being the president of our high school’s Best Buddies Chapter centered around inclusion and acceptance of people with and without Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities (IDD). One of my perhaps biggest strengths, in my opinion, is my ability to see people as more. More than what others think, more than what they think of themselves, and more than what their grades dictate them to be. Whether a person has a disability or not they are worthy of friends, opportunities, and acceptance. It is my life goal to open the eyes of other people to the amazing gifts people with and without disabilities have to offer. What I bring to the table is a passion to build an inclusive environment. I will find a way to spread the message of inclusion because no one deserves to feel like they don’t belong because to someone somewhere they do.
