RYAN KACVINSKY (MACK)
Exercise and Sport Science (Pre-Physical Therapy) w/Nutrition
- To cultivate awareness in as many people as I can
- Use my privilege to speak up for the voices being trampled on
- Make use of this wild and precious life I have been blessed
- Stay strong through my 2013 New Years Resolution to go vegan
- Have a pet squirrel and pomski (and I am not joking)
I love doing anything active and outdoors. I'm a huge fan of
gymnastics, martial arts and triathlons. I'm also passionate
about photography and massage therapy and hope to pursue those
realms of interest on my own time as I head out of college.
Words to Live By:
"All we see of someone at any moment is a snapshot of their
life, there in riches or poverty, in joy or despair. Snapshots
don't show the million decisions that led to that moment."
- Richard Bach
Favorite ATP Memory:
- Applebees madness
- Everything Van said and did
- Performing "Breathe Me"
When I think of Awareness through Performance, I think of...
You will not be remembered for your grades. You will not be
remembered for your petty arguments. You will not be remembered
for your “should haves, could haves, never haves.” You. You will
be remembered for taking a stand; for screaming atop the highest
height your passions, loves, memories, and fears. You will be
remembered for actively - not aggressively - making a
difference. By acknowledging your mistakes and fully immersing
yourself in the ocean of peace that we have the ability to swim
forever in, you can live on. The “crowd” is wrong - it is
boring, unfulfilling, uneventful, obsolete. Make imprints,
messages, stories. Leave a mark, for if ever there was a time,
now is it. Quit playing with excuses and realize there are NO
excuses for refusing to participate in your own life. Live.
Believe. Fight for your voice.
Involvement with ATP has had this impact on me:
Sometimes it hits you. Sometimes the simple, bare truth peeks
out from the depths of this chaos we call life and exposes
reality. Sometimes - just sometimes - a spark is whipped in your
direction when you least expect it and you realize something:
we’re not really that different from one another. When the chaos
of life is burned away, all that is needed is that spark for the
realization that we eat, breathe, live, love, learn, and lie
together. Every one of us has goals, memories, happiness,
sadness, and madness that is our own. But we all go through this
together; as one human race.
