“I recently became a legal guardian so the thing that was really crucial for me was learning not to be the buddy. There are a lot of things I’m learning as a recently new legal guardian is something that I will be able to model for parents and relate to them because sometimes it is hard when you don’t have kids or don’t have the responsibility to set the example for other parents and say ‘Oh, you should be doing this,’ or parents will be like ‘How do you know what it’s like to be a parent,’ so now I can at least relate a little bit more.”
