Q: Who has had the biggest influence or impact on your journey up till now?

A: Last summer at church camp they showed a video of a 19-year-old football player named Jace. He told his cancer story and it was amazing! His faith was so strong. It was emotional for all the high schooler’s in the chapel watching. Near the end of that video I realized that it was my time to step up and tell my story because that’s my purpose. I want to be an inspiration and give hope to others as Jace did. My story for God’s glory.
