I started attending Lyndon State in August 2012 and am currently almost a sophomore. Since moving from the Colorado Springs to Vermont I have continued to play a major role in the LGBT Community.

I’m currently President of my college’s GSA. We have been able to perform the play “8” on campus and focus on the acceptance of minorities, especially the LGBT Community. An extremely unique part of Lyndon is that the President of the college is openly gay, this has in turn allowed GSA to be more prominent and involved on campus.

But I would never have been able to come this far if I hadn’t had the leadership guidance Inside Out gave me while I was still in high school. I was able to learn and teach to others that it is possible to have a tremendous impact in our community while overcoming the challenges some people have accepting LGBT people.
