"My sincerest thanks for allowing me to be a part of Open Jar. The weeks spent with the Open Jar crew fed my creative spirit in a way I've never known. To walk away feeling both encouraged and challenged is a beautiful balance that most will never experience.

I'm not sure words could ever express how much this has meant to me... and how I will use it not only to better myself, but to encourage and pass along to others along the way."
