Teri Believed In Me

About three years ago, I met Teri Grier when I was studying at SWOCC to earn my digital arts degree. I was making myself sick with anxiety over what I wanted to do with myself once school was done. I didn’t see any value in myself, or what I had to offer anyone, but Teri did. She helped me find my strengths, saw through my self-doubt and knew I had potential. Through her compassion, I’ve been able to succeed in my field and have grown immensely. A few months ago, she brought me onto her campaign as a graphic designer, photographer, and field worker.  

She has the amazing ability to instill passion and hope into people. She can see the potential Oregon has, and like with me, she knows how to help us reach that potential.
