Best Story

My best story was when I performed during an open mic comedy show. I was terrified at the idea; yet I did it anyway to challenge myself past the point of fear.

Origin Story

My life is a series of moments that came as a result of taking risk, being courageous and desiring to be an example of what I preach to others.
