Just a Bit about Me: I really enjoy nature and art. I have played the clarinet in Marching Band for several years. I like writing fiction. My favorite author is Stephen King because he is such a vivid and immersive writer. My favorite subject in school is History. I love interacting with people and animals. One day I hope to work in a field where I can make a difference in the lives of others. I have been in Krav Maga self-defense for the past year. I am also a member of the local Police Explorers Post and plan to join the Young Marines this Fall.
I would like to go to YEA Camp to both develop my leadership skills
and interact with other people my age who are interested in making a difference. A lot of my peers are focused on just getting out of high
school and having as much fun as they can while doing it, but that's
just not me. It would be great to meet and get to know other people
like me. I'm interested in a career in military intelligence, so
leadership skills as well as the ability to interact with people—two
traits which successful activists possess—are a must. I'd also like
to learn how I can try and make a difference for an issue I care
about. I hope this camp helps me a.) develop skills I'll need later on
for my future career, and b.) make connections with other like-minded
In order to be a part of such an awesome experience, I would like to raise funds for my tuition. I have begun dog-sitting for my neighbors who work fulltime and must leave their pets home alone for long periods; however, school keeps me from being able to raise as much as I need to attend YEA Camp. I would very much appreciate your assistance in helping me reach my goal. Thank you!
