In 2018, I made a goal to be heard more. I think it’s important to use your voice so people know your point of view on things. It’s also important to speak out so people who haven’t found their voice yet can get courage. As someone with a rare disease, it was hard for me to find my voice. But when I spoke up, I learned that people wanted to hear what I had to say. I also learned from others who were speaking out, and I didn’t feel alone anymore. I hope in 2019, I can encourage more people to use their voices, too!
