What Does Kindness & Hope

mean to you?

Kindness is about showing people they are loved and matter. Hope to me is about empowering people to find joy within themselves to create a positive impact.

Hope to me is that no matter what life throws your way you always stay hopeful and know that you will always overcome and it WILL get better no matter how far your back is against the wall.
