Crossing the Finish Line!

Lindsay:DaniThe staff at Whole Me Inc. wants to congratulate our very own Youth Director Lindsay Ryan Anthony, and her running partner, Danielle Strassle, for crossing the finish line after a grueling 26 mile marathon in Los Angeles!  We watched them grow and blossom into runners over the past year, helped sponsor their trip, and cheered them on from the sidelines.  Their next plan is to run in the prestigious New York City Marathon in November of 2015.  We will be fully behind Lindsay and Danielle again and cheering loudly for them! Congratulations on an amazing feat!

We appreciate our Community Volunteers

monu and tamlaWHOLE ME, Inc. is proud to recognize Ms. Tamla Htoo and Ms. Monu Chetri as Community Volunteers for local Deaf Refugees. Tamla and Monu relocated to Syracuse, NY from Refugee Camps in Thailand and Bhutan. Both of these young women know first-hand how terrifying it is to relocate to new country and try to learn the language, culture and laws especially when you cannot hear. Deaf children living in refugee camps are widely ignored, isolated, abused and receive little to no education. This had been their experience up until the time they arrived in America.

These experiences would be devastating for most people; however these two young women have found a positive way to use their past to benefit other deaf refugees in our CNY Community.  Tamla and Monu spend the majority of their time teaching the refugees American Sign Language and helping them to become acclimated to life in a new country. Tamla has successfully become a United States citizen and Monu is in the process, hoping to take the US Citizen Test soon.

Their “Never Give Up” attitude is an inspiration to not only the deaf refugees whom they serve but to the community-at-large, proving that the human spirit can thrive despite overwhelming hardship. WHOLE ME, Inc. thanks these two incredible young women for being such strong role-models to us all.


  • Whole Me changed my life because they helped me to make new friends, try new things, not give up, be proud of the person I am and to have fun!
  • Whole Me gave Christine a boost to her self-confidence and self esteem when she was younger and helped her to deal with Deaf issues as she has grown.
