What was your favorite event?
The full group retreat

What did you learn in PFO that still impacts you today?
I learned about people first language, which put a name on something that I’d always believed at my core. I believe in the inherent worth and dignity of every person. There are things about every single person that I can’t even begin to know or understand, and PFO helped me realize that and grow from that knowledge.

What are you passionate about now?
I am passionate about being an advocate for others, particularly in the area of mental health. I want to help change the conversation about mental health in order to reduce the stigmas attached to mental health problems.
