My story

  Five years ago a very special dance class was introduced to me, I Can! Dance. I Can! Dance is a free dance class offered to children with disabilities where I volunteer every week as a "dancing buddy". Once working there, I realized my love and compassion for helping children with disabilities. I began to search and find new ways to help children with disabilities, so I started working with Special Olympics, Camp Aldersgate, and the SideKicks Club. Once I was invloved with all of these amazing organizations, I realized that making a difference in someone else's life is one of the most amazing feelings a person can have. These organizations have forever changed my outlook on life. My goal is to bring support and awareness to these organizations, promote my platform Special Mentors 4 Special Students, and to promote other teens to become involved with amazing programs such as the ones I am currently involved in.
