You can hear the insane energy I have…

When I’m talking to Kirstin, my soul truly lights up. She is easily one of the kindest, purest and SWEETEST humans I’ve had the honor of meeting. I actually met her through Alia Manetta, our October Leader! I’ve only met her twice, but I truly feel so connected to her. I cannot wait for you guys to get to know her.
