What led you to a year of service?
I felt led to service this year because I felt called to give of myself with others. I want each person, no matter their life circumstances, to feel loved and seen.

Who or what inspires you most?
My parents inspire me the most. They have given so much to me over the years and have given me bountiful amounts of love. Both of my parents have never stopped working hard for one another and for each of my siblings and I to live the life that we love. My parents inspire me to keep on pushing myself to grow more holistically into myself.
Best moment as an AV to date
The best moments that I’ve had as an AV are my drives home after work with my housemate who I work as a nurse with. I love the service that I do and I love working with my housemate. We both want to provide the best possible holistic care to our patients and I love being able to share both of our experiences during the day with one another.
