I’m a second-generation Chinese immigrant and a sophomore at Standley Lake High School, passionate about technology and hobbies like programming and video creation. The #1 issue I care about is uplifting the poor and less fortunate. In my opinion, everyone, regardless of age or circumstance, should be able to live and strive for success without worrying about providing bare necessities for themselves or their families. One thing I wish people knew about me would probably be my passion in technology. Being able to share such a large part of my life with somebody else would be fun.

I am Bennie Pollack I’ve lived in Denver my whole life I love you ski and I love the mountains. I care about homelessness because I think it’s a problem that keeps increasing and is beginning to really affect our environment

I’m Juliette, a junior at Stargate. My hobbies include reading and baking. I love being part of youthroots because I can give back to my community.

Hi! My name is Lily and I’m a senior at Lakewood High School. The issue that I am most passionate about is making sure everyone has equal opportunities, regardless of their background or where they come from. One fun fact about me is that I love to hike and be outside.

Hi, My name is Rhea and I love to go outdoors and learn about new cultures. I am reserved but can be outspoken with my opinions. I love meeting new people and look forward to joining YouthRoots!

I am Sarvesh Satheesh Kumar. I like school, volunteering, and baseball. The number one issue I care about is helping out people struck by poverty. This is because everyone deserves the same chance to have a good life. Something I want people to know about me is that I am excited to volunteer and help out my community!
