“My overall goal is to help these kids realize, whatever obstacles there may be in your life, you can push past them. You can get through the other side even if you have to walk around them, but when we are in our hardest spots it does get better and just continuing to work hard and not giving up in life. And just being a good person overall,” said Ferraro.
