Why I love STARS…
Beginning in college, I started working with individuals with disabilities at a summer camp. This experience allowed me to open myself up to new experiences. The people I met showed me joy, love, trust, and a different appreciation of life. They changed my life completely. I love being at STARS and with people whose lives daily inspire me to live a better life; to become a better me.
