Mediocre with great results isn't a luxury afforded to us. Y'know my whole life I've never been someone who has been particularly good or quick at making choices. I used to take so long with menus I had to give myself a rule, I look, the first thing I see that I like I choose, I close the menu and put it away. Making a choice here at Generation chosen has never once felt hard because I knew I was always choosing to help people. When I first joined it was meant to be a part time and short term, come in help some people, shake some hands and move on, and here I am somehow years later ready to keep shaking hands and helping people and when it's my turn to move on I want to have built something that's so much more than when I received it, the tricky part is I've received alot. I stand on the shoulders of giants and I can reach pretty far myself. Mediocre isn't a luxury we can afford. That's what I hear when we say many are called, few are chosen
From a childhood of constant change due to my parents' mission work, I gained essential social skills and a belief in learning from every situation. Despite my early struggles with impostor syndrome, the leaders at Generation Chosen reshaped my life's path by seeing my potential beyond my doubts. As I grew within the organization, I achieved milestones like spearheading my university's Diversity and Inclusion Advisory Council, engaging in a political fellowship, and taking on leadership roles. Now, as co-Executive Director, I aim to impact lives as I was impacted—fostering a culture that values individuals for their worth, not status. My goal is to enhance Emotional Intelligence, deepen understanding, and spread unconditional love, becoming a better community leader and inspiring positive change. Ultimately, if I can help youth recognize their potential beyond challenges, I'll consider my mission fulfilled.
