I’ve been a girl scout for over 10 years earning my girl scout bronze, silver, and now gold award. Because of my gold award project I got accepted into an international leadership conference for women called Women2Women. I spent 2 weeks in Boston with over 100 girls form over 30 different countries around the world. I am on the Varsity Field Hockey team and Swim and dive team for Tyngsborough High School. I play defense for field hockey and do both swimming and diving on the team. I am also a year round theatre participate at my school. I cue all of the schools lights for the show as well as be in the major productions and dancing numbers. Last year, I was elected the Treasurer of the International Thespian Society (ITS). I also love dance and art. I hope to go to a good college and major in a type of engineering.
