Daily Leap: Abi Copeland

by / July 4, 2012

Meet Abi Copeland.
An Ozark Missouri stay at home mom, and basketball coach.

What’s your leap?
Get involved in working with Special Needs children in my area along with preparing to begin my Masters in Special Education.

What is the biggest obstacle you’re facing?
Time. Being a parent of two children under four means that time is hard to come by.

If you had six months with no obligations or financial constraints, what would you do with the time?
Immerse myself in the special needs world. Learn, serve, grow, and truly spend my life giving someone else the chance to experience life to the fullest.

What makes you sad when you look at your world?
Apathy makes me sad. Apathy means a state of indifference, or being on the fence. I hope to do my part to raise up individuals who are passionate about making a difference and who spend their lives causing and inspiring change.

One piece of advice for other leapers or potential leapers?
Taking a Leap and making it known means you are adding accountability to your life. Accountability is crucial in enduring obstacles and bumps along the road. Make sure someone knows what you are doing and ask them to hold you accountable.

Most important song for a road trip?
Saints by Little Legend
