How has Special Olympics changed your life? Special Olympics has changed my life in more ways than one. I have met some of my closest friends through Special Olympics, and have continued to stay motivated to stay fit through all of the Special Olympics health education along with the multiple unified sports offerings. Special Olympics has changed my life for the better and constantly reminds me of the good in this world. I am so thankful for all of the friendships, laughs, and smiles I have been a part of throughout the years.
What makes you most proud? What makes me most proud is being able to say that I am a part of such an incredible movement to make this a more unified generation. I am proud of the progress we have made towards making the world a more inclusive and accepting place.
