#22. December 14th, 2012: Holly Ravazzolo

Everyone should keep their eye on Holly Ravazzolo. She’s an up and coming world changer that is already doing so with her phenomenal energy, charisma, and overall character. When I first met Holly, as I told her today, I immediately knew I had met someone very special and someone who would remain in my life forever. She has this smile that captures you and makes you happy when you see it and she has this burning fire ball of excitement within her that makes it so much fun to be around her! When Ms. Dunkirk and I were brainstorming someone to take on board to help with speaker coordinating for TEDxYouth@SanDiego, we literally both looked at each other and said “HOLLY.” It was a no-brainer. Having Holly on board for that section of the event and in turn the whole event was absolutely a fantastic decision. She provided such spunk and joy to the group and she was always willing to help out with whatever needed to get done. Holly is also a fantastic listener. I say this because it takes a lot to be a true listener; someone who focuses on what you’re saying and actually cares about hearing what you have to say. Holly does this all the time and it makes you feel special and loved. Holly is exceptional at loving and caring for those around her and because of that, she is incredibly loved, too 🙂 Holly, I honestly cannot thank you enough for the huge role you have played in my life. You are a role model for me in that you always are confident with being yourself and that you live out the dreams that you want to be a reality. You are a beautiful, BEAUTIFUL person, inside and out, and I am so very lucky to have you as my friend. 🙂 Thank you for always making me laugh when you were on stage at Comedy Sportz and thank you for always being so supportive of me and for being so encouraging with my dreams and aspirations. Thank you for having a fantastic family and thank you for that lovely letter you wrote me at the end of my senior year 🙂 You have changed so my lives for the better and make so many people happy each time they see you. I am so so so excited to see you in about a week! Love you lots and thank you again for being in my life. Thank you so much for being yourself and for standing up for what you believe in. For all of that, Holly, I thank you 🙂
