Today I made the first of 3 payments to my leadership academy and I feel so freaking proud of myself.
The academy hasn’t even begun yet (start date is September 21st 🙌🏼😬) and I’m already feeling the shift and growth.
The journey started when I put in my mom’s credit card and told her I would pay her back for that first payment in less than 30 days. I knew it was going to be a stretch, I knew I was going to have to get realllyyy uncomfortable, and that’s exactly what I did.
I’ve reached out to many of my friends and family,people in my network who I know love and support me and I’ve asked them for financial support (maybe I’ve reached out to you reading this). Some of them I haven’t spoken to in months or years, and here I am asking them for money (talk about feeling awkward AF 🙈😖), but my vision for my life, for the impact I want to make, is greater than this uncomfortable feeling I have when I start calling.
I know that the growth and transformation I receive from the leadership academy is going to allow me to show up differently in the world, (I can already feel myself showing up differently), and I truly believe it is going to affect the people around me as well.
This is what I remind myself of when I pick up that phone to call that person I haven’t spoken to in forever and I know the conversation is going to come around to me asking for money.
My journey, as awkward and uncomfortable as it is, is helping to inspire others, to show them what drive, passion, belief and ownership of your shortcomings looks like, and that is all so worth it.
For those of you that have helped make this first payment happen, I sincerely thank you from the bottom of my heart, words cannot express my gratitude.
For those of you who have thought about donating, who have forgotten, who have no idea what I’m doing, don’t worry, I am only 1/3 of the way there so there is still time to make a contribution (the link is in my bio)🙃😉

The city of Redding, California was recently devastated by the #CarrFire . I called Redding home for three years, and was crushed to see so many friends and loved ones lose their family homes and so much more. The natural, almost mystical beauty of the North State also took a major hit from the fire, and people of the area are still recovering in a multitude of ways. And now YOU can help! The wonderful @mrapinoe, who was born and raised in Redding, has linked up with @shastarcf to raise money for vital relief efforts, helping victims of the fires truly progress in the extremely difficult recovery process. DONATE NOW!!! (LINK IN BIO!) Every dollar counts. Here’s to the whole Rapinoe family, and everyone helping in this difficult time. And much love and healing to the old North, and everyone who holds it dear. Thanks for your support! ❤️ #ReddingCA
Such a wonderful moment to be awarded the Miss Top Fundraiser 2018 title by my pageant sister, Miss Intercontinental Canada 2017, @matteahenderson 🙂🇨🇦.
Indeed the title is not about ME but YOU, the supportive people in our society who deeply care about the ones in need such as sick children of @childrenswishfoundation struggling every single day to survive. This title is about the ones who trusted on my mission to go the extra mile for the disadvantaged in our society, and got together to make a difference! Some of you donated $5, some $20 and some hundreds of dollars. Together we raised over $4K and without you this wouldn’t be possible !Even the smallest amount that I received from you means a world to me as I know that you put your heart❤️, and care into it and tried your best to make a positive change in somebody else' life and give hope!The purpose is what matters the most and not the amount each person can afford to give🙂! Being generous and united is what makes us Canadians🇨🇦.

Of the people that I look up to the most in the world is my grandpa Emery is right at the top. He's a hard worker, kind, generous, and wholesome. He's donated over 200 units of blood for the Mayo Clinic and the American Red Cross. Grandpa Emery inspired me to start donating. I just passed the 2 gallon marker (16 units), only 184+ more to go before I beat him!
