QUOTE: “Everyone is meant to follow their hearts. I have always had a big imagination and love for wanting to be around my friends and people I love. I’ve accepted I’m a storyteller, a producer, a romantic with a big heart with the want to include other selfless people to build something greater together. One of my gifts is knowing we will do it.” JGA
