You just have to own it.

You have Celiac's.  You are gluten free.  You just have to own it. 

I spent the weekend with a bunch of high school kids at Camp Kitaki for the Nebraska Key Leader Camp.  I met a very interesting young man named Jordan, he has the opposite pretty much of celiacs - he's allergic to everything else besides wheat (Eosinophilic Esophagitis).  

Our Key Leader weekend was focused on being true to yourself, caring for others, and leadership to your community.  Jordan embraces these values of integrity, growth, respect, community, and excellence in the most positive way.  

He faces an incredible challenge daily with food allergies and with being different in a very obvious way but he faces that challenge, he owns it.  In just the very short time I've known Jordan, he has inspired me - he's confident (more than I ever was in high school), he's ridiculously funny in a natural and charming way, he's caring of others, and even at his young age and the hand he's been dealt in the health department - he's determined to make a difference in this world.  I can say he's certainly on my hero list.

Everyone could use a little Jordan in their lives... Remember just be confident.

Meet Jordan Sager.
