Why I am an AHA Advocate: 

I became an AHA advocate because I believe in the importance of educating others about the wide variety of people still greatly affected by prejudice and discrimination in our country. Through these educative efforts I also hope to increase my own knowledge and help facilitate efforts that encourage individuals to view different aspects of diversity in a positive light. Step by step I hope to be able to do my part to help create a more accepting and warm world. As Maya Angelou once said: "To make a difference is not a matter of accident, a matter of casual occurrence of the tides. People choose to make a difference."

Fun Fact: 

I have a collection of baby succulents and watch Crash Course videos on Youtube for fun in my spare time.
