About Me

These include cross country, basketball, volleyball, track, international club, key club, and math team. She hopes CEO will help her strengthen and further her connections in Hancock County and allow her to be more involved in the community. She also hopes to get better at public speaking. She plans on going to college but is unsure what degree she will pursue; however, she loves to travel and hopes to travel a lot in the future.
