for Being on SURVIVOR: To challenge myself socially,
mentally and physically. Also, to win the million dollars to be

thing I wanted to hear at that age. I've learned to try and turn

things at you, but it's how you handle those obstacles that matter the
most. This game is tough. It's challenging mentally, socially and
physically and I know that I can overcome anything is thrown at me, no

because I have in my life.
You Think You Will Be the Sole SURVIVOR: I will never give
up. No matter what happens in the game, there are always loopholes and
opportunities to change the way things are going. After my diagnosis, I
realized that life may not always deal you a good hand, but it's how you
play the hand that can change it around.
