Hello Beautiful People!
As a Glimpse Kid, I've been on a collective journey of love and compassion with the rest of the GLIMPSE INTO THE LIFE OF A CHILD team. Through self reflection and positive self-talk I have worked really hard at finding the peace within me and anchoring myself in the here and now. It's not always easy but I have found the courage to stop looking outside and start searching inside so that I can shine the light within me even on difficult days. I strive to lead with my heart and share my peace with others. None of this would have been possible without the numerous partnerships with authors, songwriters, and local businesses who have supported the GLIMPSE TEAM in being the best that we can be. I'm carving out my spot and rocking what I got! We all have our issues and we all have our stuff, but I know and believe that I am enough. With a grateful heart, I want to make a difference in this world, I want to be the change that I want to see.
As an OPERATION SMILE BRAND AMBASSADOR, I advocate for acceptance and the universal right to dignity. By sharing my story and listening to the stories of others, I celebrate and learn from the differences between us. With all of this joy and wonder in my heart, I know the importance of walking into the darkness of others and being their light to lift them up... not because I want something in return, but simply BECAUSE I CAN. The Glimpse Kids have been encouraged to recognise what this world needs and then advocate for that change. We are always looking to build partnerships and create change, one smile at a time.
The struggles and hardships faced by children, families, and communities due to facial deformities such as cleft lip and/or palate conditions is REAL. Every child deserves to smile and with safe access to medical care, we can change the world one REAL SMILE at a time.
Please consider donating in support our my team's REAL SMILE campaign.
There really is joy and wonder everywhere when you see the world from the eyes of a child, a child who is healthy and smiling BECAUSE YOU CARE!
Thanks, in advance, for your support.
