Hero: My Mom!
Superpower: Getting up at ungodly hours. 🙂
Hardest Challenge: Forgiving myself and honoring who I was at the time I made my biggest mistakes.

Favorite Lacuna Loft Program: Unspoken Ink!
Proudest Moment: Heh, no idea. But jumping off a cliff on my First Descents trip made me pretty damn proud of myself.
The best piece of advice I’ve ever received: Let yourself feel.
How I stay mentally healthy: Self-forgiveness and a lot of processing via creative writing.
Personal Mantra: #YOLOFuckIT! Take the risk – stop waiting for things to be perfect. Life will never be perfect. So just do it.
