American Spirit is a dream job. For more than a decade I've been saying one day I will tell all of the good stories happening in communities everywhere. Well, that day has arrived and now I have the distinct privilege of sharing the stories of those around us who are making a difference. They are regular people with amazing stories. Ava Hata is one of those individuals demonstrating the American Spirit. Bright, funny, courageous, an educator, and true hero in my book for what she is doing to help those with Type 1 diabetes.
This year West Coast Media has allowed American Spirit to share these inspiring stories via their platform WestcoastMagazines.com. Thank you Liz Cahn-Castruita for believing in the good of mankind. Thank you Shelly Harrison for making this happen.
Here is Ava's story. January 2017.
