School: Wilton High School
Years with KHK: 4 years
How it all started: I wanted to do more work in community service and did some research online looking for organizations that focus specifically on kids.
Favorite KHK event: Launching Libraries
We’ve been doing this event for a few years now. We collected new or gently used books and donated them to the Yerwood Center in Stamford. It was a lot of fun. I especially liked getting to work directly with the kids that day. They helped us organize the books by genre and I enjoyed getting to know the kids who would be using the library we put together.
What top three skills have helped you to be successful in your personal life?
- Public speaking
- Planning an event
- Communicating with others
I’ve had to do a lot of public speaking since joining KHK and so that skill has improved. I also had the opportunity to write and receive a $500 grant!
How much do you agree with this statement: My involvement with KHK has strengthened my belief that I have the power to make an impact on another person’s life.
I strongly agree. Planning and executing a project and then seeing the event come to fruition has really shown me that hard work/team work really pays off.
Why would you encourage others to get involved?
I would encourage others to get involved because of the leadership opportunities.
