Birthday: February 1
Birthday Fun Fact: I am a twin, so I share a birthday with someone every year!
Why I empower youth?
I believe that volunteering should be a part of everyone's life, at any age. I love volunteering with my mom and friends; it is a big part of my life. If everyone does just one small act of charity, we can really make a difference!
Why I celebrate foster kids?
I love birthdays and I especially love getting to celebrate with family and friends. It's heartbreaking that foster kids don't get to share in this experience. Although a birthday box might not solve all of the problems in the foster care system, it can give foster kids a special memory that they will cherish for the rest of their lives.
