Through school I am involved in Student Council, Crochet Club, FCCLA, Choir, Math and Science Club, Science Olympiad team, and I am my class Secretary. Outside of school I play an active role in my church's youth group and take part with helping the children there. I am a Campus Missionary and try to share love and happiness throughout my school. I am very much a people person and I strive to bring joy and happiness to others. I am known to be constantly laughing and smiling, and just all around happy! My goal for the future is to become a High School History teacher, and later on doing something with Politics and the Government. This is my fifth year being in Steelville’s MCB Group, and my second year being on the Youth Advisory Board. I am excited for all of the opportunities that will come from this experience. I am extremely excited for the opportunity to get to know all of the other Youth Advisory Board members, and to work with them on MCB Projects. Through the Youth Advisory Board I would like to learn from MCB (the organization and the communities involved), and I would like to grow from the experience along with my fellow Youth Advisory Board members.
