Defining Moments

How I responded to discouragement


    Messages from Family:

    You are floating, you need to figure out a real job and do it." "You aren't smart or committed enough to make it.

  • How I responded:

    I stepped away from all of the noise and finally made the scariest decision of my life to do something I truly wanted to do but nobody else wanted me to. It was scary and thrilling all at once, it put me on a path of being happy with my life and I never looked back. It showed me as long as I stay true to myself and put the correct people around me I'll be happy and work towards what is for me.

Experiences and challenges that shaped me

Click to expand

  • I made life choices, like moving and taking opportunities too quick that put me at ground zero. I took a summer camp job because it provided a place to live, eat and I made enough money over the summer to restart.

  • I told my family that I am gay after college and moving away. They were still helping me financially because I was in an internship but the moment I told them they dropped me. I was in another state and had to figure out how to stay there.
