I am happily taking time away from the busiest week of college to express just how much the Holstee Manifesto has inspired me, and as I write this I wonder how my passion and inspirations will differentiate from someone else’s to have the opportunity to share my story on Holstee’s new website and hopefully inspire others as much as Hosltee has inspired me.

I want to first start by saying that I was introduced to the Holstee video through a friend via Facebook. I could not stop watching the video. It was beyond what I needed at that point in my life. Soon after, I liked Holstee on Facebook, Pinterest, and Instagram. I just could not get enough of the Manifesto!

During this time, I struggled with knowing what career path I intended to take. I have always had a passion of helping others and I never want to settle for less, but I felt like that’s what I was doing. I had changed my major from Nursing to Health Sciences but I could not find the satisfaction I was yearning for. After doing some soul searching and turning to Holstee to find answers in what it is I want to do with my life, I found exactly what I needed. I want to “Live my dream and share my passion.” I changed my major to Public Health with a concentration in Community Health; it was like a light bulb for me.

The feeling I had when I decided to make this change is still indescribable. I want to work with a Global Health Organization to prevent the spread of diseases in underdeveloped countries and educate people about Public Health. I could not be happier to have finally found my passion and my meaning to life on earth. I thank the Holstee Manifesto for opening eyes and inspiring me to question myself about what it is I wanted from life. I now have the drive to go for my dreams no matter how big they are or how impossible they may seem from outsiders prospective.

Not only has the Manifesto impacted my life in such a huge way, but also makes a mark on how I live my life on a day-to-day basis. I strive to be a better person in all aspects of life and live up to the high expectations of the Holstee Manifesto. My passion was discovered because of the inspiring, enthusiastic people of the Holstee Manifesto. Thank you for sharing with me!
