“You’re not rich until you have something money cannot buy.” This trip made me realize how rich I am, how much I have. I’m blessed with my lovely mom, with my very good education, with the fact that I can go to the hospital whenever something happens. It made me realize that the things that are normal to me are actually a great privilege.
This week’s #TuesdayTestimonial is here to bring some #holidaycheer in July.🎊 Amanda Brodell met her #foreverfamily , Just in Time, one life-changing #December .
During a routine meeting with her program coordinator at the #GuardianScholars Program at @southwesterncollege, Amanda shared she had no plans for the #holidays . She was alone. Her coordinator encouraged Amanda to attend a JIT holiday event and it opened the door to a #future of possibilities. It was then and there that she became a part of our JIT family!
Amanda has since participated in many of JIT’s #enriching programs including Pathways to Financial Power, College Bound and Career Horizons.
Her professional highlights at JIT?
1) Securing an #internship during the Pathways to Financial Power conference to fulfill her #mastersdegree requirements.
2) Meeting Joan, her JIT Career Horizons #coach , who is her definition of #WonderWoman !
Are YOU ready to make a #lifechanging difference in your life? Visit the link in our bio and join the JIT family today!
Christmas in July! Did you know they celebrated Christmas in the annex with the helpers (Miep, Johannes, Viktor, and Bep). As the product of an interfaith marriage (Jewish and atheist/Quaker), I’ve celebrated both Christmas and Hannukah my whole life. And here’s the thing, y’all, latkes are great but it’s hard to beat getting all your presents on one day. Shhhh. Don’t tell my grandmother. (She knew) 🎄💕
Eben and I met at Phoenix Fearcon a decade ago at the AZ premiere of his film "Sick Girl." I was completely blown away and still hold it dear to this day. We talked for hours afterwards and kept in touch for a bit but unfortunately as it happens, we lost contact. I kept up with his career, his triumphs and tragedies but never once did I forget him. Flash forward to a few years back and we reconnected as he and his team saved the horror convention scene in Arizona. He's helping save lives through vegan outreach @vegantuas He's still my friend after all this time and still one of the best dudes you'll ever meet. Even though we only get to see each other a couple times a year and talk only at odd intervals, much love man. Thank you for everything. I'm so proud of you. #ebenmcgarr#sickgirl#madmonsterparty#houseofthewolfman#hannukah#vegantuas#veganpower#horrorfamily#ripjohmmcgarr @madmonstergram
