I was born and raised in West Nyack, New York and moved to Vero Beach, Florida where I am currently a junior in high school. I am very passionate about my organization, Balls-Go-Round.org, a non-profit which is committed to replaying millions of non-biodegradable used tennis balls that would otherwise be thrown away into our landfills. I also love photojournalism and serve as editor of the yearbook.

My HERlead Project: Tennis Balls Transformed for Military Morale!

My project will take the recycled tennis balls I collect through my non-profit Balls-Go-Round to create holiday ornaments for American troops stationed abroad.
