The passion for special needs developed at a very early age in that I have a brother with special needs. In elementary school I naturally gravitated to the special needs population out of a desire to want to help. During activity days, many of my peers with special needs weren't able to perform activities independently and the way that many of them were treated and ridiculed bothered me, so I naturally wanted to help. This desire to want to help matriculated through middle and on up to high school. During my college years I worked a different after-school programs where I was given the task to assist the special needs youth with homework and other activities. I am able to see the growth in those who need a little helping hand to do some of the things that others can do independently and it gives me great joy and happiness to be able to help.
