Diagnosed with bone cancer at age 15, I spent a decade in and out of the hospital. The doctors told me I'd need lung surgery every two years for the rest of my life. Now, not only have I been cancer free for almost six years, I've become a role model of what it means not just survive, but to thrive.

This mini film is a celebration of how we can all dream bigger — not just for ourselves but for our whole world.

As I balanced barefoot among the rocks in the Anza-Borrego Desert State Park. (trying not to think about the crew's safety chat on snakes and scorpions), I thought about how lucky I am. There were so many steps along the way where I could've said "I can't" and stayed home. Every time I said yes, amazing people who believed in me and who've had a bigger vision of what I could do in this world stepped forward — from my mom who went vegan with me after my fourth recurrence of bone cancer, to the yoga teachers who insisted I could become a yoga teacher too, to the talented woman who designed my website, to the director who brought together the crew for this film and made an idea a reality.

My hope is that you see this and realize you, too, can be a barrier breaker and a stereotype smasher!
