Favorite aspect of your school: I love all of the opportunities there are to get involved. By becoming an advocate for your own education, school becomes a much more engaging and enriching place. 

If you have been involved in community service projects, which has been most rewarding and why? The most rewarding community service project I have been a part of is volunteering at the Tough Kids Challenge that the district's PE teachers put on for the elementary schools. This is an event I definitely would have participated in if I was in elementary school, so it feels really good to give back and encourage kids being active.
