June 7, 2013
Since the beginning of the Astro-HAL campaign, I have been breaking boundaries in terms of others’ expectations, and my own limits through being introverted yet putting myself out there every day.
On June 7, 2013, I stepped farther outside of my comfort zone for one night. Certain comforts such as a bed, shelter, privacy and electricity were not be available to me and other participants. I slept on a mat under the stars in my astro-suit, using my backpack as a pillow. It was a blast with lots of friendly people supporting a great cause. Freddy Damani introduced me warmly to just about everyone involved.
Every dollar I raised went toward YESS programs, which support youth facing difficult realities.
