What inspires me to do what I do
I find inspiration through trying to be a part of something that is bigger than myself. In the past I have worked with refugee populations that had recently arrived to the United States. The ability to work with these groups, or any charity, keeps me motivated to work towards improving the lives of other people that are in need.
