What is the most interesting or surprising thing about you, or that has happened to you?
The most interesting thing about me is that I raised $15,000 for my area youth by writing to the Clinton Family Foundation on behalf of the Youth Advisory Council.
Are you the oldest, youngest or a middle child and what does that mean to you?
I'm the oldest child, and I absolutely love being a role model for my younger brother. Having the responsibility of being the eldest sibling not only means I'm a role model by what I say, but I'm also a role model by what I do.
Name one person, family, friend, celebrity, who has had the most influence on your life.
My Aunt Kathy (Dr. Kathy French). I look up to my Aunt Kathy so much for her many accomplishments! She was the first woman to graduate from Johns Hopkins University for neurosurgery. My Aunt Kathy is a great example for all young women! She has shown me that if you work hard to accomplish your goals, you can achieve your dreams!

On one Saturday each month, members of the Lakeside Key Club volunteer for Habitat for Humanity clearing brush and rocks, raking the yards, spreading dirt and installing sod, among other projects.
Jackson House - I volunteer serving dinner.
Potter's Clay volunteer - I help provide Thanksgiving dinner for women and children with Key Club. I'm also involved with canned food drives throughout the year.
I was involved with Key Club in conducting and coordinating fundraising activities throughout my school in memory of the victims and families of the September 11, 2001 terrorist tragedies. Over $2,000 was delivered to the Garland County United Way to be used locally.
With Key Club, we held a fundraising and food-raising campaign (Cause for Paws) to obtain food for the animal shelter. We also stuffed 25,000 envelopes for Animal Services's campaign to raise money for an operating room (pet neutering) at the animal shelter.
With Student Council, we decided to choose the Arkansas Children's Hospital as a charitable project. We worked with another school in Hot Springs and ended up raising $10,000 within a two week period!
