I am a junior at Horace Greeley High School in Chappaqua, New York and am passionate about helping children and youth inside and outside my community. They truly have been an inspiration to me. I love being mentally and physically challenged outside of school as a competitive tennis player, ballroom dancer and beekeeper.

My HERlead Project: Books Recorded with Love

My project will increase youth literacy and facilitate connections between incarcerated mothers at Bedford Hills Women’s Correctional facility and their children. By delivering books and technology for mothers to record themselves reading these stories aloud, my project helps strengthen family ties and inspire a love of reading.
