I like to think of myself as a creative visionary, but that’s quite the overstatement. Really, I’m just an avid writer, reader, artist, dreamer, and whatever else you might think up to call us creative folk. I applied for this program because I am currently in the process of creating my own non-profit, dedicated pediatric palliative care, and I believe that this program will be very beneficial to that.
