1. Who are/were your role models for "giving back" to your community and how did they influence you?
My role model would be Teri Hairston, who works with the United Way of Forsyth County. Teri does homeless programs such as Project Homeless Connect and the Point in Time Count,and I have never met someone as passionate as she is. I love the drive she has to get things done even when it seems like there is no way. She has given back greatly to this community through her and her teams effort to end homelessness and I am honored that I had the chance to work with such an inspirational woman.

2. What issues impacting women & girls are you most passionate about? Do you have any personal connection to any of these issues?
An issue that impacts many women and females that I am most passionate about is teen pregnancy and STD prevention. Many young girls and women do not understand the many risks that are involved when having sex. Although not personally connected I believe that we have to do a better job of making young girls and women aware of the risks they are taking when they have sex.

3. What would you tell other women and girls about The Women's Fund to encourage them to get involved?
To encourage other girls and women to get involved in the Women's Fund I would tell them about how strong of a sisterhood the Women's Fund is. The Women's Fund has many numerous influential and diverse women who have made a huge difference in our community and it inspires you to want to do the same.

4. Tell us a little bit about yourself: 
I am currently a senior at Salem College who will graduate in the May 2013. I am majoring in Not for Profit Management and Public Policy. For the past two years I have volunteered with Project Homeless Connect and Veterans Helping Veterans. I love to help others, write poetry, and read mystery novels.
