For all of the difficult circumstances I've endured, I am extremely thankful.
I've been making my own way in this world and following my dreams for most of my life. Although I struggle at times, as we all do, I refuse to follow paths that my heart and my soul aren't in sync with. For most, this seems impossible, especially in a time in society where conformity is praised over originality. For me, this is all I've ever known.
I'm grateful to be who I am. My name is Cassidy Howell.
