My parents brought me and my sister to MMS when I was three.

Growing up here for most of my life, MMS redefined family for me. I am so thankful for the staff. Even though they are not my biological parents, I have felt so secured and loved by them. They believed in me even when I didn’t believe in myself. They have inspired me to make a difference and pay it forward into the lives of others.

I will be attending George Mason University in the fall, where I will double-major in Business and Rehabilitation Science. I hope to own my own physical therapy facility.

I honestly don’t know where I’d be without MMS. Thank you to everyone who made it possible for me to grow up here.
