. . . Living UpLift since 2009
Favorite UpLift Character Quality or Life Skill: Integrity because it is the foundation from which on can demonstrate respect, responsibility, etc. It is the driving force of ones character.
Favorite Day at UpLift: Graduation because you are able to celebrate the hardwork and dedication that it took our students to finish high school. Many of them are the first individuals in their families to graduate or they may have not anticipated on graduating on time or at all, so being able to see them conquer what once they were fearful of is amazing.
Favorite Quote: "Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, and fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people will not feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It is not just in some of us; it is in everyone and as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give others permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others." ~Marianne Williamson
