Briefly state in your own words something about yourself that you want people to know.
I live my life not taking myself too seriously, enjoying each day as it is, laughing (definitely the best medicine), appreciating and loving the people in my life, and giving thanks each day for the blessings that come my way.
One person CAN make a difference......be that person
