Why I Joined Handmade by Heroes: I joined this company because I wanted to be a part of an organization that supports and provides opportunities to veterans that they wouldn’t otherwise have. I enjoy creating something with my hands, especially personalized or customized pieces.

My Favorite Sport Team and Why: My favorite sports team is the Seminoles.

I enjoy the enthusiasm that these young men and women put forward and the competitive nature that excites us all.
