Who inspires you?
M: My daily interactions with everyday people inspire me the most. People have gone through struggles that many have no clue about. All people want is someone to listen to their story. I open up as much as I can with a person I just met and they tend to reciprocate. I am able to apply their insight to form an inspiring message for the world to see and learn from. Everyone has a voice and holds the power to positively change the life of someone in need.
