National Leader of the Year 2019
CHS Girl Talk (Temecula, CA)
“Girl Talk taught me that leadership is not a performance, it’s a constant habit that requires persistence, integrity, and daily mindfulness. It was through this experience leading my club that I saw how mentoring and leadership wasn’t just a singular skill for positions of power or missions. It was about propelling those around you in every facet of your life to become who they need to be, and very well can be, in any given moment.”

Spencer County Girl Talk Chapter (Fisherville, KY)
"Along with leading Girl Talk girls’ groups, I take charge of the Spencer County Backpack Buddy Program; the Backpack Buddy Program provides low-income students with weekend meals… I coordinated a Backpack Buddy Food Drive by partnering with our local grocery, Country Mart. After food items are purchased, they are placed in a decorative shopping cart towards the entrance. Several times a week I collect the donated items and bring them to schools in the Spencer County School District for the Backpack Buddy Program."
