Mental health advocate, heart of gold, eternal optimist. Rose Cuff is an eternal optimist.

Short stories: Laura Batty

Who or what currently inspires you? Honestly, right now, there’s not a lot inspiring me. People who are still managing to advocate for what they believe in or do nice things for the world inspire me.
