Teresa G.

I am a senior at El Camino High School in Oceanside, California. I am passionate about making a difference by reaching others, taking risks and doing what I love to do, including dance, community service, running and playing soccer. My family inspires me to persevere through every situation as their sacrifices, unconditional love and support, and commitment have taught me to never underestimate my abilities and to try my best in everything I do.

My HERlead Project: Youth in Action

I will be expanding my 2014 HERlead Project, which addresses and emphasizes the importance of breaking prejudicial stereotypes that label high school students by inspiring them to make goals and to envision a better future for themselves in order to drive the desire for leadership and activism.
