Why do you do what you do?
Studying abroad during college, I had the unique opportunity to help host a retreat for Kosovan child refugees during which we used all types of activities to teach teamwork, communication skills, cooperation, and tolerance to children who had fled deadly circumstances with their families and were now trying to get along with previous enemies. For three days, I was humbled beyond belief. The families I came into contact with during that time changed my life in ways I never could have imagined. Their smiles, despite the great challenges they faced, showed me what it means to live a life of true happiness, and their obstacles have reaffirmed my profound desire to find ways to impact the world for the better.
When I’m not Fundraising, I'm usually…
Finding a new Netflix show to watch (or more accurately, binge-watch); developing training and serving alongside the incredible volunteers of the Junior League of Collin County, or eating at one of the thousands of good Dallas restaurants with my husband.
