WHY IS COMMUNITY INVOLVEMENT IMPORTANT?
“Because change is everything. Being involved means having your voice heard, and standing up for the things you believe in. Being involved means being the voice for many whom are afraid to speak up. While being young might be an obstacle, at my age I have a better opportunity for people to listen to me, for my generation will be the one who will have a major impact in the world.”
IF I COULD IMPROVE THE WORLD I WOULD…
“I would run for office, but if I am unable to I would encourage people to get out and vote.”
MY COLLEGE OF CHOICE
I have applied to Regis University. I would like to attend the University of Denver or Colorado State Pueblo.
