His believes strongly in the transformative power of relationships and works to ensure all members of this community have access to pathways of hope. He says, “During difficult times in my life I learned the value of relationships in communicating one’s value, and these relationships gave me hope for the future. I want others to have hope, to see the good in the world and in the eyes of those closest to them. I consider it an honor to play a small part in creating hope for those without hope.”
