1. Feature: Kapable Fitness and Performance by David Torrence

    My vision is to be impactful. All my life I've wanted to be influential and inspire. Growing up as a child I had low self-esteem and struggled in school. Then one summer my life changed. I learned to play basketball. I didn’t know it but at that moment a seed was planted. Fast forward to present my vision started to flourish when I moved back home. When I moved back I saw that there was a need. …Read More

  2. A New Way To Approach Health by Jason Dragos

    Over the past 5-ish years I’ve been almost obsessed with the idea of creating a better health experience for people. My journey didn’t start with HealthBeMe and I don’t think it even started as an obsession. But my obsession became my vision and my vision has shaped my story. And now my story has become the HealthBeMe story… which is really the only story I have left. Because I know that i…Read More

  3. Struggles Are Opportunities by Susie R

    Being hopeful isn't always easy, especially with chronic illness. Chronic conditions are hard and you can frequently feel as if you’re at breaking point. Doing ‘normal’ basic tasks can feel like a continuing battle and a constant struggle every day. So how does one stay hopeful? Let’s start with this quote by Helen Keller: “The struggle of life is one of our greatest blessings. It makes…Read More

  4. For The Love of Art by Charles Hines

    When people ask how I started writing, I tell them it’s the only thing I know I’m good at. Nothing convinced me to become a writer. Writing was a blood instinct. I remember prose from as young as elementary school. Wacky stuff. In middle school, I wrote this series called the Weird Weather Series. It was about this town that always had insane weather issues. And based around this kid who was p…Read More

  5. Poetry: An Avenue to Truth by Darius Simpson

      Poetry for me started in 4th grade with a general poetry unit in Mrs. Croft’s class. I did well enough for her to want to show my poetry packet, complete with the basics of introductory poetry, to my mother. Well from there my mother continued to encourage me to write on one hand and I would write for girls I liked after recess, and family members on holidays and birthdays. As I grew into und…Read More

  7. Words Change Lives: Focus on the Positive

    My vision for Words That Surround Your Soul is basically just as the title states; it’s my goal to use positive words to encourage everyone in such a way that their souls are encircled with an impermeable barrier to negativity. I want people to know they can survive their darkest moments because there is always a brighter horizon in the distance; we just have to focus on it. Words was born after…Read More

  8. See The World Through My Lens: A Story by Treston Mayo

        The Beginning: A lot of people go through college having no clue what they want to do after. I was that person, "sort of". I went to school to get a business degree because one thing I did know is that one day I would want to own my own business. I remember in 5th grade my teacher had a conversation with me and a few other students about where she envisioned us when we got older, and I remem…Read More

  9. Isabella Piper: A Writer, An Inspiration, and A Young Visionary

    What does it mean to be a young visionary? This question has sat and simmered in my mind for many years. I have been what you would call a “dreamer” my whole entire life. Always predominantly souring for the stars in every aspect of my life— until I reached a substantial point entirely. I believe that every young visionary in this world can achieve their goals. There is never a dream too big…Read More

  10. Love in Death?

    It’s terrifying and depressing when you lose someone, especially if the thought of death has always been on your mind. When I lost my dad, I wondered to myself, “How long do I have?” I didn’t know. I still don’t. When my dad died there were times I asked myself, “What’s the point?” And there were times where it made me want better for myself. Death has a funny way of making you ei…Read More
