I am known to be constantly laughing and smiling because of this. My goal for the future is to become a College History Professor, and later on doing something with Psychology or Sociology. This is my fourth year being in Steelville’s MCB Group, and my first 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 see MCB (the organization and the communities involved), and I would like to learn and grow from the experience along with my fellow Youth Advisory Board members.
