Yall, I am so happy to be able to share some new amazing memories from my life, memories I will forever cherish. Cayden, my brother, and I were awarded the absolutely AMAZING opportunity to join Colorado Young Leaders in a service project helping our friends over at the Friends of Dillon Ranger District  in doing some housekeeping ensuring the lovely trees can have great opportunities to grow and be so impactful to the community. This trip also included an overnight CAMPING experience. This was my first time ever volunteering with Colorado Young Leaders, and based on this experience, it will not be my last. Cayden and I got to meet some amazing fellow youth leaders who have dedicated themselves to serving around our great State of Colorado… we also met a visitor who serves the dope State of Pennsylvania with her leadership. On top of it being my first time with CYL, it was also Cayden and I’s very first time camping!!!! I want to thank everyone who was here for making our first so incredibly special. This camping experience brought so much joy and lots of love to me in a time when I needed it the most. I will always remember the incredible leaders I met, and I intend on continuing to build meaningful relationships with some of Colorado’s brightest minds as I continue to serve as a dedicated CYL Volunteer. Who knew camping could be this fun?!?!?!?! I will forever cherish these moments, and I am so thankful for everyone who made this camping trip one of the best moments in my life.

Having a blast with community while giving back to our greater community is the best thing ever!!!!!
