“I’ve always said I wanted to be a person kids and teens could trust. Someone who would be in their corner and be their “person.” Kids have so little in their lives that isn’t controlled or influenced by their parents or guardians, so I want their time and space with me to feel like their own. To feel safe and know that our time together cannot easily be affected by someone else’s ideas or control.”
