I am a junior in HS and I love skiing and fishing. I care about mental health because I believe that everyone deserves treatment without stigma. A fun fact about me: I speak 4 languages!

Senior at Fairview High School. I’m passionate about women’s equality because a girl shouldn’t have to overcome more obstacles than a guy to reach the same goal. Something I wish people knew about me is that I love content creation.

I am Arely Martinez, I wish people knew that I read slowly, and educational disparity concerns me the most cause knowledge is power.

I’m Caiden Smith, I go to Erie High School. One of the most important things to me is surrounding myself with people with ambition. We are all heavily influenced by the people we surround ourselves with.

The top issue I care about is youth homelessness. While no one deserves to be homeless, kids need more help that isn’t being provided.

I am Kavi, and I am a student. I like to make art, speak in public, do the occasional debate, code, create stuff, write. I also like to do math, even though I’m not the best at it, it makes more sense to me than English grammar. One thing that I wish people knew about me is that I have different faces that I use dependent on the situation. So if I seem way too serious, know I’m working on it.

I like to focus on climate change, global warming. It goes by many different names, but I’m talking about the one thing that is slowly poisoning our world while we do nothing, or not much, about it.

My name is Kiara Welch and I am a junior in high school. I care a lot about LGBTQ+ representation in schools because it is still a huge problem and struggle for a lot of youth. Something I wish people knew about me is how opinionated and determined I am.
