I am the one who loves the outdoors, country music, four-wheeling, hunting, and singing. One of my dreams is to meet Kane Brown in person so I have one memory I will never forget in life.
Also my biggest dream is to stop hate and racism. I wanna be someone who goes to schools and talks to kids and teens about life and that even though there's hate I wanna tell them it will get better. I wanna be someone a little kid or teen looks back at in the future and says "She's the reason I pushed through this."
I just want to inspire people and kids in this world. I want to make the world a better place where people feel loved for being themselves. I want them to say 'I am beautiful in every way possible.'
Also lastly, another dream of mine is to be a singer. I want to go on stage with a professional singer so I can show my talent to the world. I have always wanted to join Americas Got Talent. I am the one who has a dream. -anonomous"
