My name is Zach (Zed). I’m currently a student at Brigham Young University studying wildlife and wildland conservation. The dream is to work in a national or state park somewhere. Basically anywhere that doesn’t require me to be behind a desk my whole life.
Shortly after my 23rd birthday I got pretty sick with some weird symptoms and not long after I was diagnosed with relapsing remitting multiple sclerosis. Life since then has been full of ups and downs as I not only learn what that means for me, but learn what it means to not let a diagnosis define who I am and who I want to be.
Coping is a lot of self reflection, honesty, and a constant attempt to find the positive no matter what is thrown my way and I hope to maybe help others who are experiencing their own trials to be able to remember that there’s always a silver lining.
Keep that yoyo spinning.
