Do you have plans for any future charity ideas?
Absolutely. I have always given my time, money and skills to many charities, businesses, and people. I love helping people and giving as much as I can in various areas. It keeps me humble. I give anonymously. I shed away from the limelight and have never told anyone of all my contributions. However, this year I was asked by high schools to create my own Scholarship. I was honored to be asked and will be creating 2 types of Scholarship programs to give hope to future students and help them go to college. I’m excited to create these two Scholarships and present them in 2020 to students of Morton East and Morton West Highschool in Cicero and Berwyn.
In addition, I will continue to create fashion designs, jewelry, bracelets, shoes, shirts in some form or another to contribute to autism. The shoes are the beginning but I have to really tackle the costs down so that more people can afford them. Fashion seems to be the best way to get people involved in a message, and my message is to get more people to be kind and inclusive of autism. We never know what one is going through in life…and we must remember to be patient and be understanding of each other. If you don’t know, ask, and if you are asked provide the information or resources.
