June 25th 2011, I shaved my head for the St. Baldrick's Childhood Cancer Research Foundation. With the help of my mother, family, and friends I was able to raise $4,000 to this amazing organization, and donate 4, 12" ponytails to Locks of Love. In the weeks leading up to my donation I was just simply excited. When I was having my head shaved I was all smiles, from ear to ear. It was my hair dresser that was nervous and my dad who couldn't watch. It all hit home when an elderly woman spoke up from the corner and told me that she was a cancer survivor, and really appreciated what I had just done. In that moment I realized the magnitude in what I had just done, and the beautiful opportunity that St. Baldrics gives everyone. "Beauty is in your heart, not your hair." Some may call it a sacrifice, but I call it an honor, a pleasure to give that little thing, my hair, to give the incentive for people to learn about St. Baldrickís and to donate to this incredible cause. If there was one thing that I could say to children who have cancer, I would tell them that they are beautiful, and that no matter what happens, always keep your head up and stay strong because there is hope, and you never know what tomorrow may bring. They can find true beauty within their heart, not a mirror. Children are our future, being a part of St. Baldrick's is for them.
Why are you participating?: 

Who I am isn't about who I am with, or what I look like, but it is who I am inside, and that I am sick of people judging me for that outside mask that we all have. We hide what's inside with the vain mask that everyone sees, our superficial selves.

In middle school, I interviewed a Vietnam war veteran for a school project. As I interviewed him, he told me about his life and I realized he didn't really have many people left in his to visit or take care of him. For the next few years, I sent him letters and cards hoping it brightened his day and made him feel cared for.

I am a Resident Assistant at Quinnipiac University and find it to be a very rewarding experience. Everyday I get to help my residents with things that are impacting their lives, whether it is a small matter or something more significant. The most rewarding part is knowing that I am making a difference in their lives and helping them to make a difference in the lives of other people.
Why are you participating?: 

I want to help others understand that they are not alone. Too often people get so caught up in judging others for their differences rather than celebrating the uniqueness that is each person. It is time to start sharing our awesome gifts with the world.

While studying abroad I was fortunate enough to teach children a shanty-town, the children who needed it the most. It was amazing to teach these children with the minimal resources that we had, and seeing how appreciative they were. They are the children who need to be given the building blocks to make the most out of their future, and I was able to help teach these children. It was the greatest deed that I have been able to do to this date.
Why are you participating?: 

Labels are not worth having, it makes people feel trapped in a box when everyone should be given the courage to break out of the mold and bend the lines to be whatever it is that they want to be.
