what this means to me  the purplethread was the first club I joined on campus and the only one I felt truly connected to as a freshman. The positive goal of threading good is something that I try to carry out in all aspects of my life, and will continue to carry into my career as a psychologist!

random fact  I am happiest with a book on the beach.
what this means to me  I am thrilled to be on the purplethread board so that I can promote a comfortable environment for our members to connect through personal or non-personal experiences and stories. My favorite part about purplethread is that you do not have to go through something terrible in order to have empathy towards others who have. Our meetings encourage honestly and sincerity in a judge-free environment. People often heal themselves by being kind to others.
