I didn’t think I was capable of forming such an extensive organization.
Ryan Douglas Depp is a student at South Warren High School who has found his calling in life early on. He organized an outreach program that has been providing aid to the homeless in the Bowling Green area. Ryan’s story of following his dreams while accepting help along the way leaves us all remembering that nothing is impossible when you set your mind to it. Tune in below to see Dan & Claire’s Facebook LIVE they did as well to introduce Ryan!
Q: What was your “impossible” – the thing you thought you would never be able to do?
A: My impossible was setting us such a large of animation for helping others. I never would have imagined me being the head of an official nonprofit. It’s something I doubt I would have been able to achieve without the help of others.
Q: Why did you think you’d never be able to do it? What was standing in your way?
A: I never thought I’d be able to do it simple because I didn’t think that I was capable of forming such an extensive organization. I thought that at most I’d only be reaching my services out to a few people.
Q: When and how did you end up achieving it?
A: I think I ended up achieving my goal when my organization became an official 501(c)(3). That could t have happened without the help of people like my father. And I wouldn’t have been able to manage such a wide organization without the help of our volunteers and the people that donate to us.
Q: What piece of advice would you give to those who may be feeling like they have an “impossible” they want to conquer?
A: My advice to those who feel as though something is impossible is that is you have enough belief, out in enough effort, and are willing to accept the help and contributions of others, that anything you set your mind to is doable.
