In 2004 as a high school sophomore I became a member of a family that would influence my life forever. That "family" is known as the Hugh O'Brian Youth Leadership Foundation (Northern California seminar). It was during this three-day seminar that I truly discovered who I was as a leader and found my voice. Coming from a small town in the mountains, I had never before been surrounded by over 100 motivated high school students with the same ideals and passion for the future. I was immediately inspired and vowed to return to HOBY NorCal as a volunteer to inspire future generations of leaders.
I am now going into my 9th year as a volunteer for this outstanding organization and I still feel energized and inspired every summer when the NorCal seminar rolls around. I continue to give back to my community because I want to be a part of that special moment in a young student's life when they discover their potential and realize how truly amazing they are. I had that moment as an ambassador and I hope to give that unique experience to others as well.
My hope is that you'll join me in supporting this special organization. HOBY NorCal is entirely run by volunteers and we donate our time and money to host this event each year. Your contribution IS making a difference in the life of a high school student. YOU are helping us shape the future leaders of America.
Thank you for your continued support!
