I pledge to spread inclusion by treating everyone with kindness and respect. I also pledge to treat all people equally, because we all have feelings.

I pledge to spread inclusion by taking the time to by present in conversations about how we can spread inclusivity within my community to ensure our entire human ecosystem is cared for, to be an ally for those who need it most, and to be cognizant of my own privilege in order to increase my empathy in the public sphere.

I pledge to spread inclusion by starting a conversation about all types of diversity. By finding comfort in the discomfort of others while talking about the subject, because it is there where we bring life to the mission of inclusion. I also pledge to spread inclusion in my every day life by correcting those that misuse words when talking about people of differing ability level, but most importantly by explaining to them why it is that those words do not represent the brilliance and uniqueness that lies in every individual.

I pledge to spread inclusion by always being a friend and being there for someone. I will never have anyone feel left out and always engage with new people I meet. Simply saying "Hi" to someone can make their day, more than you know!

There’s a misconception about inclusion. When you hear the term “all-inclusive resort,” you think of luxury. But inclusion is not a luxury, it is a necessity.

So we show up: on playgrounds, in music classes, at junior gyms. We arrive with high hopes and open hearts, but it would be a lie to say they are not sometimes dashed by looks from other parents.

When I was in first grade, Loretta Claiborne came to visit my class. She showed us her gold medals from Special Olympics victories in long-distance running.

I have been a Special Olympics athlete since 2012. Besides being an athlete, I am also a Special Olympics US Youth Ambassador and a Montana Special Olympics State Youth Activation Committee member.

I have always been very protective and concerned about my younger sister, Sagarika, who was born with an intellectual disability. I feel extremely blessed to have a sister like her. She is a gift to our family.
