“My Step Mom answered the phone, I froze and hung up but within seconds she called me back and as she began to speak I knew exactly what she was going to say. She told me that my Dad had passed away three months ago. When I put the phone down with her I didn’t know what to do; I was overcome with guilt and grief with nowhere to turn for any form of closure”.

“I can also tell you with such honesty that I wake up everyday feeling excited for what lies ahead, not just in my day, but in my life. I will be forever grateful for what happened in 2014 because it was the catalyst for me to chase my dream. It taught me to never put things on hold and if you want something, you’ll find a way. However, most importantly I learned that I will always be okay.”
