This opportunity both excites me and causes great anxiety. I strongly feel that if we ever want things within the wounded warrior community to change for the better, we have to be willing to share our stories every time we get the chance. We can't expect things to change if we are not willing to put ourselves out there. However, with that being said, public speaking causes me great anxiety. I am learning to deal with it and it gets easier each time I put myself out there. I am hoping that sometime in the near future, it will become less stressful for me and that I learn to enjoy it. After all, I'm just sharing my story and no one is a better expert on that than me!!!
More updates to come after I'm back from DC!!
