Mathison Looks Up To: “My dad is definitely someone that I look up to. He works incredibly hard and utilizes his passion daily. For him, working is fun because he is able to do what he loves. I hope that I feel the same way in my future career.”

Mathison is Stronger and Wiser Because: “Living with my disabled sister has been an enormous and positive influence in my life. She has taught me to treat all people equally regardless of physical or mental differences. That has allowed me to be much more open to other people in my daily life.”

Part of the Solution: “I think that discrimination is always an important issue. Teens need to be aware that differences are not inferiorities and that stereotypes are not representative of everyone. If people realized that, I think there would be a lot less violence and malevolence towards others unlike ourselves.”

Cause for Concern: “I would be the president of Best Buddies. My sister was involved with the program and I have seen the tremendous impact that it can have. Best Buddies involves someone just being a friend to someone else. Even something that simple can be incredibly powerful.”
