Progress to Goal
When I first heard about Waterboys, it was over text. Chris sent this long, six or seven-page text message about the organization, and it was clear he was moved by it. So when I learned about what the organization was trying to accomplish, it was an easy choice to join.
We tend to live in a bubble in America, and it’s easy to stay focused on ourselves. I jumped at the opportunity to break out of that bubble and affect lives by providing those basic things that we take for granted. The most exciting thing is being a part of something that’s bigger than myself.
You only have so many years that you get to have a voice, and it’s your choice whether or not you want it to have meaning. For me, it was a perfect calling.
