Social Impact Initiative: “Confidence Under Construction,” stemmed from my body insecurity and lack of self-confidence. As I strive toward continued self- improvement, I want to help others construct their confidence and the belief that they are enough. My platform does not focus on working with one organization, but rather with various organizations to encourage, support and serve as a confidante for others no matter their personal struggle.
