“People are like stained-glass windows. They sparkle and shine when the sun is out, but when the darkness sets in, their true beauty is revealed only if there is a light from within.”
In middle school and high school I was involved in as many service organizations and creative extra curricular activities as possible. I was active in the high school drama department every year of school beginning in kindergarten. In high school I took my first leadership role as the Freshman class President and held many other positions of leadership throughout. Perhaps the most important and exciting position I had the honor of serving was the Secretary for the Indiana Association of Student Councils. I also had the amazing opportunity to attend many leadership conferences at the district, state, regional, and national level, as well as the IASC sponsored Student Leadership Institute. After high school I served as a camp counselor at the IASC Student Leadership Institute for 3 years and a cheerleading coach at my old middle school for 1 year.
Since then, my heart has been yearning to help others once again and tap into the creativity I left behind in that high school auditorium. It has always been my desire to serve my community and fill the void that was left after those high school extra curricular activities. It is an honor to work with the Derby City Sisters to create positive change within the community, promulgate joy, and be a humble servant to the community in whatever ways I can.
I am awed and inspired by how quickly we have come so far and already reached out to so many people. It is my belief that with the help of the DCS, Louisville will become a friendlier, more loving place, one person at a time. I hope to inspire and empower many people to realize and express their individual joy and beauty.
