Top two accomplishments in community service/volunteerism:
I was the student ambassador for my school systems "Strong in Every Way" campaign, which helped to educate both faculty and parents about how to create stronger relationships with their students. This program was designed to strengthen the relationships a student has with the role models around to help them succeed to their highest potential. In addition, I was part of a Leos Club which led service projects to help our local community. We gathered donations for birthday boxes which were donated to a local caring center for families in need. Additionally, we fulfilled books for a library at a children's home and had the chance to bring the book donations ourselves and interact with the kids which was an amazing experience.
