I think the most powerful experience I had was working on our procedure doll project. My little brother spent a lot of time in the hospital when he was younger, and his procedure dolls helped him a lot. I loved knowing that by working on this project I would be able to help kids just like my little brother!

I had the opportunity over the past few months to mentor a kid at the Utah State Hospital. One of our most memorable experiences was preparing for his dance recital. I got to watch him dance and practice and show off his "moves" for me. The bond we have formed has been special in such a short period of time.
