BROADCASTING TEAM DIRECTOR

2020 - 2022

In both my 7th and 8th grade years, I was a director for one of the five morning broadcasting announcements teams. I led 7 to 10 of my peers to write scripts, record, edit, and broadcast live, without missing a day. We went on to win the “Top Broadcasting Team” award from the school in my 8th grade year.

THE EMPATHIZERS

2021 - Present

In 7th grade, I created the Empathizers club, a peer-to-peer, anti-stigma club at my middle school that eventually had 40 members by the end of my 8th grade year. Now, as I head to high school, I plan to continue to lead this movement, and bring it with me as a peer-to-peer lunchtime club for students to talk to one another about how they are feeling.
