I like to think of myself as an adventurous person who is constantly looking for ways to push my own limits. I believe I am this person because of the environment I grew up in. I am not just speaking physical environment but more about the environment that the people in my life created for me. My youth was filled with amazing family, friends, teachers, and coaches. They each encouraged me and pushed me in many ways in order to help me succeed.
One of the most important ways I was pushed was through athletics. I was never the fit athlete or the one you depended on to score the game winning run but I always put my full effort into any sport I joined. Cross-country truly pushed my limits and changed my entire view on what I believed I was capable of. None of this would have been possible without a dedicated coach who put time and effort into every athlete who was ready to put in the work.
The sad reality is not every child has these opportunities. I believe it is our duty to help strengthen our local youth in order to strengthen our future community. I am excited to lend a helping hand to Chicago Run, a group dedicated to promoting health and wellness to Chicago children "through innovative, engaging, and sustainable Youth Running Programs." As someone who has always struggled with weight, it is important to me to help our children understand health and wellness is much more than being thin, it is the knowledge to make better choices and the confidence to become successful.
