"Flowers grow back even after they are stepped on. So will I."

I love this quote because it reminds me of how resilient both myself and the universe are. It makes me optimistic for my future – not to mention how empowering it is.

"...I love sharing my story and I feel like a lot of other people can relate and that’s really validating for me and I know it’s really validating for others."

My favorite story I've written for The Mighty...

"I had no idea how relatable that story would be. It was overwhelming how many people have reached out to me to say that they had no idea sensory overload was even connected to their diagnosis. It felt good to educate and validate people both in and out of the community."
