Heidi is a Youth Support Partner in our Southern Region, we recently had the pleasure of sitting down with Heidi and learning more about what she is doing.

HeidiHow long have you been with Youth MOVE Maine and what is your position?
I have been a Youth Support Partner at Youth Move Maine for 5 months.

What about Youth MOVE Maine and the work that happens here inspires you?
Every day I am inspired by the triumphant stories and resiliency of others.

The MOVE in Youth MOVE stands for Motivating Others Through Voices of Experience, what does that mean to you?
Motivating Others Through Voices of Experience, to me, means using my own lived experience and struggles to empower others to overcome their own hard times.

What is your favorite part of your job?
In this job, I grow and learn on a daily basis. Being a YSP is extremely fun and rewarding.

When you’re not being a YSP, what do you do with your time?
When I am off the clock I enjoy spending time with my 5 year old son, hanging out with family and friends and playing/watching sports.

If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would it be?
I would travel to Brazil.
