@jennymoonchild: “When I think of a lion, I get a little scared to be honest.

They are one of the smartest and strongest beings – how could I possibly relate to that?

Loyalty: If you’re in my circle, you’re in it for life. I have been so lucky to meet and befriend some of the kindest and genuine people throughout my short 26 years. While on my many walks of life, I’ve learned the importance of quality over quanity, and just how special each and every one of my people are. All of these fine folks have molded me into the person I am today. Each person influencing me to be my best person.

Strength: I was taught about strength at a young age while involved in soccer, cheerleading & music. It is not just physical, but mental strength that carries you higher. That is something I have carried with me throughout the years. After college, I started training for my first half marathon. People thought I was crazy… I was NOT a runner- despised it actually, but I desperately wanted that challenge. I bought some new running sneakers and started walking, then running. A mile at a time, out of breath, out of shape! Shortly after, my best friend decided to run this with me, so we would meet up on weekends for our long runs, and let me tell you, my mental strength started to kick in. Miles of hills I never dreamed of conquering were easier and more exciting to climb. You know that little saying ‘You can do anything you put your mind to?’ Well, its real! Overcome those obstacles and come out on top.”

@jennymoonchild: “I may not be travelling the world as quickly as I would like to be, or excelling in my career like others  my age, but having my health is the most important thing in my life that drives me daily to progess. Monday thru Friday I speak with patients who are in severe pain, desperate for relief. I listen to their stories, because I truely care and want to see people at their best. When I first started this job, I can’t lie, it brought me down listening to other peoples problems, but after paying attention, all anyone wants is to be heard. Day in and day out I am just trying to make a difference in someone’s life who doesn’t have their health to hold onto. My office is covered in inspirational and positive quotes, pushing me to pour that mentality out of my pores.

The opportunites I have been given thus far humble me. The people in my life who are unstoppable humble me.”

@jennymoonchild locked herself into my life circle six years ago when we worked and roomed together at Disney World. She got me a job and gave me a place to sleep three years ago in Wilmington, NC, which ended up being one of the coolest summers of my life! She’s a fellow curly headed 🦀cancer🦀 and sand-loving beach babe. Jenn’s heart is the size of the moon and her love for others knows no bounds. She always wants to make sure others around her are enjoying themselves and feel loved. I can’t thank her enough for the years of laughs we’ve shared and all those to come! Jenn, Hawaii came and went too quickly, but you have no idea how much it meant to me to see you and Kris. I love you, babe!
