It wasn't until my senior year that I realized the magnificent potential to use leadership to impact true change in our communities and our world. Serving as the student body president, I gave myself to matters far more important than I had ever known before. I had served on the student council for the preceding three years, but I didn't know the possibilities that went unrealized. One ordinary day, a substitute came to class and inspired me to add a entire new level of meaning to my presidency. Long story short, I organized an Oxfam Hunger Banquet, bringing in speakers from all around the world, and raising money to combat global hunger. It was the culmination to our school's "Care Week", and I presented on the whole process to my peers at my school and at a regional leadership conference. Seeing my passion and dedication come together to unite people and to help others was truly indescribable. I now hope to do all I can to further my global citizenship, love for people, and inspiration of others.
I'm passionate about
Global education and empowerment of women; Solving local, national and global poverty and hunger; Inspiring youth to enact change
