I decided to join HYPE because I'm passionate about the LGBTQ youth out there, and want to do my part to ensure they have a community of resources that they so desperately need. Knowing that I get to help make difference by collaborating with other inspiring, ambitious, brilliant and energetic LGBTQ young professionals is why I love HYPE!

The grantees of HYPE are the #1 reason why I joined an incredible group of passionate people who care about the marginalized within our LGBTQQIA-2S communities.

I joined HYPE to collaborate with like minded LGBTQ leaders to help our community and support organizations that improve the lives of those who have been marginalized. Progress can’t be made unless we take action and HYPE is that first step.
