Born and raised in North Carolina, I have had the privilege and opportunity to attend Wesleyan Christian Academy since kindergarten. This college preparatory school has prepared me well for scholastic opportunities upon graduation. I also have had the opportunity to volunteer at a local equine recreational therapy center called Horsepower. Here is where I found my passion for helping others in need, specifically physically and mentally challenged children. I have made a strong connection with sweet E and she is the reason I want to pursue recreation therapy as my undergraduate major. Helping others drives me to be a better human being.
