November 2016

Position with Wear it Purple?

General Board Member

Why did you join Wear it Purple?

Growing up I felt like I was different – and not in good way, and it took a long time for that feeling to go away. I joined Wear it Purple to help people at that stage in life who may be going through the same feelings and emotions and hopefully see the end of it altogether.

I released a while back that doing nothing is a choice, so I’m doing something.

Do you identify in the community or support as an ally?

I’m not very active in the community, one of the reasons I wanted to get involved with Wear it Purple was to represent anyone else who maybe doesn’t want to get involved that much – we all have a place and part to play.

3 fun facts about you.

  • I can tell the age of a horse by checking it’s teeth. Long Story…
  • I had a fear of heights and planes, so I did a skydive, and concurred my fear and I am no longer afraid of heights but still not great on planes, I’m working on it.
  • I really like to give people nick names, it’s a term of endearment.

Your hobbies/interests.

I enjoy Yoga, Fitness, Tech, Movies and Music.
