If you ask her, one of her favorite roles in life has been that of sister to Josh Paul, and their younger
brother, JD. Just under three years younger than Josh, he was her first friend. They were always close;
playing music together, playing baseball and cheering alongside one another, singing karaoke, and
running races together. She founded this organization in hopes of continuing his legacy in education and
keeping his memory alive through positive impacts provided daily!
