The importance of interpersonal communication!

What do you enjoy most about service?

I enjoy helping others. My passion is children and this service allows me the opportunity to mentor youth. I feel I can give someone a sense of hope which is something I wished I could have had during high school.

Personal Motto

Be grateful for the little things you have because someone out there is praying for the little things you already have and take for granted.
