School: Trinity Catholic High School
College: American University
Years with KHK: 3 years
How it all started: My brother, Will, is a KHK Ambassador. Ever since we were little, we always did a lot of volunteer work. In middle school, I was part of community service group called Rachel’s Challenge. This group was started with the purpose of creating a school environment that is friendly, inclusive and respectful. I found that I really enjoy helping other people. In addition, I have fun working on the projects and love seeing the results.
Favorite KHK event: Shoe Store and Launching Libraries
I especially loved seeing the smiles when the kids find something they want. It means a lot to see my work reflected in the community.
