Tell Us Your Good Deed: 
When I was a junior in high school, I founded a non-profit organization called Root Rescue. It provides health and beauty care products to local shelters and families in need. I know first hand that a person's outward appearance and hygiene are directly related to their confidence. I grew up in a family of substance abuse and my parents refused to provide the money for hair and skin related products. It's difficult to go into the world, whether it's school or the work force, without feeling confident about your appearance. Root Rescue is resource that helps build confidence in people's identity. I hope one day to make it a nation-wide organization.

Tell Us Your Good Deed: 
For the past four years, I've been working with a mentoring group run by undergraduate women at Clark called All Kinds of Girls. We spend time with 9-12 year old girls from the Worcester community and give them a safe space to express themselves and develop who they are as young girls and women, promoting self-esteem and nonviolence. Right now, I'm serving as the AKOG librarian, so I'm trying to expose girls to books about strong women, both fictional and real, that they can learn from. I look forward to my time with these girls every week!

Tell Us Your Good Deed: 
I promote tolerance for and accept people of different walks of life, religions, and cultures everyday. I recognize that my way is not the only path to success and respect that.
Why are you participating?: 

I really hate stereotyping. It's cruel and most often, not true. Yes, I am an atheist. No, I do not hate religious people.

Tell Us Your Good Deed: 
For a number of years I have volunteered as a tutor through the House of Peace and Education. Through them, I have provided knowledge, a listening ear, emotional support, and care to hundreds of underprivileged children. I have made myself available to any child in their program who needs a trusted adult and/or a positive role model in their life. I have worked hard for them to know that they matter and are important. I've done this by telling them, and by demonstrating it in different ways. I have given them fun activities to do, and taught them things at the same time. I have given them some of the happiness they couldn't get at home, and in turn they have brightened my world.
