I am a 16-year-old sophomore from Norfolk, Nebraska. I am active in community theater and youth ministry. I am a hospital volunteer. In school, I am involved in speech, mock trial, theater, weight training and welding. I enjoy designing and building computers as well as spaceship design and flight simulation. My personal goal is to run a full marathon before I graduate high school. My educational goal is to graduate college with a debt-free degree in aerospace engineering, computer science or welding. I believe there is always an opportunity to show kindness to others.

I am currently a junior at Hawken School in Gates Mills, Ohio. I am involved in multiple leadership positions in my school including being a student leader in Campus Life, leading the discussion-based club Red and Grey Conversations, and being a section leader for the trombones in the Concert and Jazz Band. Two of my favorite subjects are chemistry and humanities, both of which have helped to shape my dream. In the future, I want to become a nurse practitioner, collaborate with other medical professionals and create a wellness center to benefit all people!

I'm a 15-year-old from Buford, Georgia. Whether it be working the runway, baking up delicious treats, or being a leader in my school , I am always the girl on the go, striving to leave a positive mark on my community. Although my schoolwork keeps me busy, I volunteer weekly at the North Gwinnett co-op and have raised over 1,000 cans to feed different families in my community. As a goal-oriented and caring young woman I am hoping to expand my organization BYOB, be your own beautiful to help girls feel beautiful inside and out using STEM education and leadership roles.
