When did you serve in TiLT?

2011.

What is your favorite memory from serving as a TiLT volunteer?

My favorite memory was being able to travel different places and learn new life skills.

How did volunteering with TiLT help you when choosing a college or career path?

I learned a lot about what I was good at and what I was not so great at. I was able to try new things and know where I excelled!

What is one other way TiLT has helped you? (e.g., public speaking, making friends, learned something new, etc.)

Before TiLT, I was unable to stand in front of anyone and speak. Now I am able to stand up and lead!

One more question! Tell us a little bit about you, now! What are you doing and where are you? What are your future plans, etc…

I am 25, mom of a 3-year-old son, work driven, adventure loving, and can accomplish anything I want because of my experience in TILT. I was taught all the skills I needed to take on this crazy world. I even think my experiences in TILT [have helped] me to be a better mom. I love to lead and be in leader positions in every job I take on. And I am teaching my son to be brave and lead! In today’s world, we need more leaders. I hope to use my experience and help others stand up and lead! TILT also taught me in life when things don’t go as planned to laugh, adapt, and move on! I can’t tell you how much that has helped me in my everyday life. I’m so grateful for all the opportunity’s I was given.
