“I want to be able to enact change. And I want to be someone who can help empower other people and at the end of the day, that’s what I want to do… When it comes to personal writing, I just really want to use my experience to help other people and to just spur them on to pursue their dreams and just really understand and just be able to see themselves. Just how amazing they are in what they’re doing and to really support them. [By] using my experience, but also, even if I don’t have that particular experience, being able to listen to and try to step back and say things that I hope will be a conduit to hearing more, or helping other people hear more of someone else’s story.”
