💚🖤❤️Happy Juneteenth!❤️🖤💚

Today, we celebrate freedom, history, and the power of our community. Juneteenth marks the end of slavery in the United States, but it’s also a reminder of the ongoing journey toward equality and justice. Now, more than ever, it is important to be civically involved in our communities.

Here’s how you can get involved:

1. Vote! 🗳️
  Voting is one of the most powerful ways to make your voice heard. Every vote counts!
2. Volunteer! 🤲
  Help out at local shelters, food banks, or community events. Your time and effort can make a big difference.
3. Educate Yourself and Others! 📚
  Learn about the issues that matter to you and share what you know with friends and family. Knowledge is power!
4. Speak Up! 📢
  If you see something unfair, don’t be afraid to talk about it. Write letters, attend meetings, or use social media to spread awareness.

Remember, every action counts, no matter how small. Let’s honor the spirit of Juneteenth by working together to create a better, fairer world for everyone.

🌟 Happy Juneteenth! 🌟

What interested you about Leap? 
I have always wanted to work in the medical field, but found myself constantly frustrated by the healthcare system and how so many people are not receiving the care they need due to racial bias, socioeconomic status, immigration status, etc. Leap's mission really resonates with me, which led me to reach out so I could contribute to and learn from the people of this clinic. Leap prioritizes connections, with both patients and families as well as the surrounding community, which is something I value greatly.

Fun fact? 
When I was 9, I won a fishing derby after catching 26 fish in 45 minutes. I also got a trophy that I display to this day.

I play viola and love playing in pit orchestras for musicals, I also paint (watercolor is my favorite), and enjoy going on walks or playing tennis with my family and friends.

Favorite restaurant in the twin-cities? 
My friends and I love going to eat at Bangkok Thai Deli!

Where would you like to retire?
As my favorite place has always been the North Shore, I would love to retire in Grand Marais, MN.
