Recently, I had the opportunity to testify before the Texas Senate Finance Committee in support of all Texas school districts having the resources and training necessary to teach CPR and AED use to high school students, so they are prepared to step in and save a life in an emergency.

In 2019, I underwent a rare open-heart surgery so I could live to see age 25. Throughout my youth I was passing out in classrooms, football games, and even choir hallways due to my heart not being able to give my body or brain enough oxygen. It wasn’t until college when I was cheering at a University of Houston football game and had a cardiac event on the field that the crucialness of CPR became a reality for me.
