Something I am proud of: I am proud of my community service! In 2012, I founded the Hopeful Hearts Club to help the kids and families who are homeless in my community.

Who I look up to: Parents

Hobbies: Volleyball, reading, running, helping out in the community, listening to music and hanging out with friends and family.

My pet peeve: Littering or not recycling appropriately.

What makes me a Genuinely Unique Girl: I am a genuinely unique girl because I have a gentle spirit and a loving heart. I believe in being kind and open to everyone. Although I’m a very sensitive person, I’m not afraid to go outside my comfort zone and stand up for what I believe is right. Working with the homeless families in my community has introduced me to many different people from all walks of life. It has shown me that the most important things in life aren’t “things” at all. Life is about compassion, acceptance and hope. I want to continue to use my unique qualities to inspire others and make the world a better place!
