Introduce Yourself: Hi!! My name is Kate Burrall and I’m a freshman in college. I love God and I love people and want to make an impact in the world.
Thoughts On People In The World?: I strongly believe that all people hold immense value and are unique in their own special way. People’s dreams, thoughts, and opinions all deserve to be heard because they are important and can teach others so much.
What are your inspirations & goals?: My inspirations and goals are to make this world a better place through spreading love towards and advocating for individuals with special needs. I want everyone in this world to know just how creative and loving these people are!! Everyone deserves love and acceptance and I want the world to view people as worthy of being loved and accepted.
How would you impact the world?: I would impact the world by creating opportunities for individuals with special needs to express themselves and carry out their dreams. I’ve always thought it would be amazing to combine two of my favorite things, (ice cream and people with speciap needs), and create an ice cream shop that hires people with all types of special needs. It’s just an idea, but it’s one that I know would impact the world if carried out with!!
Struggles In Life? : I’ve always struggled with living in the moment. It’s a phrase often used but so many times I forget what it means to do this. I’m always jumping from one thing to the next, and I’ve found over the course of this year that living in the moment is more important and more stress free. It’s something I would encourage anyone to get better at.
How do you feel about yourself? Any changes you would make? : I’ve been trying to live loved this past year. I pick apart myself and all of my flaws too often. I want to live from a place knowing that I am loved and valued not because of what others think or say about me, but because of what God says about me. People will always disappoint and let you down, but God doesn’t and that’s something special.
What does love mean to you?: Love means genuinely putting another person above yourself in everything. Love is patient and kind, and it is not jealous or self seeking. Love is unconditional. While we are flawed as humans and will never be able to love perfectly, love does not have barriers in the way it is given.
