Years Involved with Special Olympics: My entire life!
What makes you most proud? The thing I am most proud of is continually working towards helping my athletes become better students, citizens and contributors to their communities. Using sports as a platform to teach life skills that will help them beyond the field or court.
How has Special Olympics changed your life? That’s a tough question, because it has been in my life for as long as I can remember. It has given me the social tools to understand how important strong communication can be and allowed me to learn different forms of communication in order to get my message across.
