My Philosophy

I believe in telling my truth.

I believe in telling my truth because if I tell mine, then maybe…just maybe, you’ll be encouraged to tell yours.

I believe in offering transparency and being vulnerable. Getting to this stage of being doesn’t happen overnight. It happens one step at a time. It took some time for me to get here and to learn their value; you will too.

I also believe in heroes. I believe in you. I believe in me, too.
