Spreading the Word for LCH: Meet the Author
My entire life has revolved around Southern Chester County. This community has seen me grow, and I owe it far more than anything I could ever give back. I grew up in West Grove, and it often felt like I wasn’t invited to enjoy the resources that were being offered. It felt like I wasn’t invited to share in the joys of my community. But there was always a place for me — a place where I could feel at home and could get help when I needed it.
LCH has been a beacon of support for my family, friends, and neighbors. I cannot explain how comforting it was to know that LCH would always be there to help my family when they needed it.
As I got older, I realized how important LCH is to our community. I never wanted to work in the medical field because, trust me, it’s better for everyone if I stay away from the medical supplies.
I have always adored writing and creating content because I know people are always listening. I know that if you say the right thing, you can truly change someone’s life. Words carry weight and power to them and if you used correctly, you could make a difference in someone’s life.
My passion for writing goes hand and hand with my passion for my community. If I can’t give back to my community through service, telling their stories seemed like the next best option for me.
I went to school, leaving my community behind, but always keeping them at the forefront of everything I did because it’s the place I will always call home. I studied Telecommunications at Penn State University, and don’t get me wrong; I really loved living in State College. But I was excited to come back home and use what I learned to support the people I care about.
I thank LCH for giving my first job and allowing me to share all the good they do. I’ve seen first-hand the impact this place has had in people’s live, and it’s been profoundly rewarding to be a small part in that.
From an outsider’s perspective, it may seem like my job is just taking pictures and writing short blogs, but everything I do has intention and purpose. Every piece of content that has been created for LCH has been thought out with my cousins in mind, with my uncles and aunts in mind — with my parents in mind.
I have loved being a part of LCH and sharing all the great things they do. I may be a bit biased, but I cannot imagine what Southern Chester County would be without them. They are an amazing organization, and I am proud to be a part of it. Thank you for reading my work! (PS if you ever see a spelling mistake — nope, you didn’t. I did that on purpose.)
