Community Service:

I engage in a array of community service as a Co- Founder of the Brookline “Anti-Racist” Placard Program; Teen President of Jack and Jill of Incorporated Boston Chapter and a Girl Scout Ambassador. Examples of my community service include but are not limited to: As a teen President of Jack and Jill of America Incorporated, I recently coordinated and led a Clean Up at Malcolm X Park in Roxbury, MA; I annually participate in chop-a-thons at Pine Street Inn and make and deliver thanksgiving baskets to families in need; and as a Girl Scout, I spend time planting, nurturing, and distributing fresh vegetables to the local food pantry in Brookline.

Anticipated College/Course of Study:

I aim to attend a college/university within close proximity to an urban city (D.C, Atlanta, New York or Chicago) where I can continue to actively engage in social activism to provide greater access, equity, and social justice opportunities to marginalized people in our communities. As such, I anticipate a course of study in Environmental Policy and Culture, Urban Policy and/or Creative Writing and subsequently, I plan to attend law school.

Career Aspirations:

For the remainder of my secondary education, I aim to continue exploring new muses for my artwork and presenting my work in front of more public forums and prayerfully onto print one day. As a Girl Scout Ambassador, I aspire to earn my Gold Award, the highest achievement within the Girl Scouts of the USA, earned by Senior and Ambassador Girl Scouts.
