WORDS TO LIVE BY

I’m not afraid of storms, for I’m learning how to sail my ship.” — Mary Louise Alcott

COMMUNITY INVOLVEMENT

Bonilla-Ortega is a member of the National Honor Society and she tutor students who need help in school. Bonilla-Ortega is also the treasurer of the Pre-Med Club where she helps organize activities for students who are interested in studying medicine in the future. Outside of school she volunteers at the Church of Ascension as a communion teacher and as a helper for the various church retreats.

WHY IS COMMUNITY INVOLVEMENT IMPORTANT?

“As humans, I think we all need each other, whether it means lending a hand, or just encouraging one another. Communities are there to help each other and to shape us into the best people we can be. My community has impacted me in so many positive ways. I hope to give back to the communities I am a part of, as I have been given so much by them.”

IF I COULD IMPROVE THE WORLD I WOULD…

“I would spread compassion. Everyone could use more compassion in their lives. I think there is a lot of prejudice and discrimination in the world due to the fact that we do not understand certain situations. I wish to spread compassion and be a friend to those who need one. “
