You don’t have to be a rock star, social influencer or A-list celebrity (if you are that’s cool too!) to make a positive difference in your local community or the world at large.

I wasn’t scared about how she’d react to the “gay thing”. I was more scared because she’s my best friend and I had been hiding this significant part of who I am from her.Read More »
Monday, Jul 5th, 2021 - I have spent most of my life being terrified. Everything used to scare me as a child. Darkness, change, talking to strangers, the clown from the movie It. I was afraid of being different from other people, and I was most afraid of not being loved.Read More »
