WORDS TO LIVE BY

“Never give up. Don’t let anyone stop you from doing what you like to do.”

COMMUNITY INVOLVEMENT

As a member of Key Club, Cendejas participates in fundraisers in order to help non-profit organizations. She serves pancakes at a pancake dinner and breakfast and has helped to organize a grand opening for a local thrift store. She also helped hold a toy drive during December for students and children.

WHY IS COMMUNITY INVOLVEMENT IMPORTANT?

“Community involvement is important because people need all the help they can get. Volunteering and helping because you want to, is the best thing anyone can do. You never know if one day you are the one in need and there will be someone else there to help you. Community service and involvement is also important because you get recognition later when you “need” it. You become well known and it gives your reputation a boost.”

IF I COULD IMPROVE THE WORLD

“If I could improve the world, I would make sure there are ways for people who need the most help to get the help they need. For example, for homeless people I would help them to get shelter and apply for jobs. This will totally improve the world because it will make everyone in the world a better person, and when everyone is a better person, the world will be a better place.”
