  • I found out about the #lyproject through the "Utterly Engaged Leap Year Party." This project went along perfectly with some of my New Year's resolutions of living a new, better life. This new life includes "inspiring others." Why? I have had many obstacles in my life, but I've never allowed them to stop me from achieving my dreams. I want others to feel what I feel. Accomplishment. Since my pledge I've:
    -Spoken to approximately 60 children in foster care about possible careers and how to get there.
    - Taught 200 elementary kids about getting a college education and following their dreams.
    - Coached 5 different women on how to get their life on track.
    - Become a mentor to a wonderful young man.
    I'm on my way to achieving my dreams of helping others.
