Moebius Awareness Day and amazing friends

Today, I was interviewed by a local news station about Moebius and Moebius Awareness Day, which is this upcoming Saturday, Jan. 24.
I talked about why the day is important to me and about the event that I am holding here at SAIT on Friday. It will be a day early but hey, there’s no harm in two awareness days, right?
Some of my friends from my journalism classes came with me to support me and the camera guy took some B-roll of them with the signs that I had them fill out for Moebius Awareness Day.
Just having them there for support meant so much and I am so incredibly lucky to have such amazing friends in my program. I really am blessed.
It’s not only my classmates who have been supportive, my teachers are incredible as well. I think I say this in every blog post but I am so grateful to have such amazing people in my life, so if any of you are reading this, I just want to say thank you from the bottom of my heart. You’re all amazing people.
Moebius Awareness Day is this Saturday, Jan. 24! Please remember to wear your purple in support!

People keep telling me, “you’re such an inspiration to so many people,” and I just want to say that without the people that I have in my life right now, I wouldn’t have the confidence to do any of this.
Also, I’m not the most confident person ever but I put myself out there because I believe so strongly in raising awareness of Moebius because I really do believe that we can make the world so much better for those with disabilities.

Hey everyone. So, I know that I have said this many times before but after the past couple days, I really felt the need to reiterate. I could not be more happy that I chose to come to SAIT. It … Continue reading

Onward to 2015

Hello, all!

Well, welcome to a new year! I hope that everyone had a fun and safe New Years Eve. Mine wasn’t too crazy. Just had some drinks and food and watched the Rockin’ Eve show from New York.

I think that my only new years resolution is to be in Times Square in New York City for next year’s New Years Eve celebration. It’s been on my bucket list for a lot of years now and I figure, why not?? Why not go next year? I want to experience the party. And New York City is my dream city so I want to go there anyway.

Other than not, I have given up on making new years resolutions. Everything goes well for the first week or so and then life gets in the way and I never stick to resolutions. Instead of making them, why don’t we all just make goals that are attainable and measurable for ourselves? Instead of saying I want to be more active, which is pretty vague, why not say I am going to walk for half an hour every day. And make a schedule that you can easily stick to. Making goals that you can measure, instead of just buying a gym membership, will make achieving these goals easier.

Do you make new years resolutions? What are they? I’m always looking for inspiration!

2014 was an amazing year of college, new friends, a new tattoo or two, spending time with family and my pony, an amazingly fun trip to California and Vegas, celebrating my birthday a few weeks ago with some of the best friends anyone could have, and lots of other good things. The highlight of my year was attending the Moebius Syndrome Conference in July. Getting to see all of my Moebius friends and feeling so completely free to be me is so liberating. No one knows me or my challenges pertaining to Moebius more than they do. I cannot wait to see everyone again in 2016!

So here we are in a new year. 2014 was great, but 2015 is going to be the best yet. It’s my graduation year and it is going to hold so many opportunities and life changes, hopefully all in a good way!

Here’s to an amazing 2015 for you all, filled with love, joy and happiness!

Let’s make it great!
