I have the privilege to advocate for two amazing individuals, getting to spend time with them and support them to achieve their goals is my favorite part of my job/career."

For me, the best part is having the ability to support people in the community, and seing them build connections and friendships while volunteering, experiencing and exploring the world around them.
