Birthday: June 18
Birthday Fun Fact: I share a birthday with Blake Shelton and Paul McCartney.
Why I empower youth?
I believe that empowering youth gives kids the confidence and necessary skills to be strong, independent adults one day.
Why I celebrate foster kids?
Most foster kids are thrown into the foster care system and feel confused, scared, and unimportant. It is not uncommon for kids in foster care to have never celebrated their birthday or opened a present. I want to let these kids know that they ARE important and that there is a whole community of people who care about and believe in them.
