The journey to create Shine Social and Communities began with a belief in the power that individual choice has to improve lives. Through my lived experiences, I saw firsthand how the harm caused by stigma, judgement, and misunderstanding can affect individuals, families and communities.
Navigating through childhood, education and employment, the passion for creating a more inclusive society only grew stronger. I have witnessed the transformative and lasting effects in which support, empowerment and respect can have on individuals.
This is why Shine SC is part of the solution. By empowering, supporting, and enabling individuals, I believe that everyone can have the opportunity to accomplish their dreams and truly shine!”
