“One of the greatest gifts I have ever received was the chance to participate in Camp Rainbow Phoenix during my summer vacation. A summer camp for LGBT+ youth, Rainbow Phoenix provides a safe environment where kids can be their true, authentic selves, test their boundaries and build their confidence. I am so thankful to everyone who donates time and money to support this program, because it can be truly life-changing for these kids.
I know first-hand what it’s like to be harassed and bullied as a teen, but I can appreciate those experiences today, because they allow me to give back in a way that is both personal and meaningful. Now, I strive to help remove misconceptions about the LGBT+ community, so people’s beliefs can be based on truth, not misguided perceptions. When I was invited to be Camp Director, I had no experience running an organization or dealing with kids, and I couldn’t have imagined how much this extraordinary gift would give to me.”
