Colorado Springs, CO
Senate District 11
I am a Junior at William J. Palmer High School in Colorado Springs. I am in the IB program there and I love it! At Palmer I am also a part of the Mock Trial team, the ECO club, and have dabbled in sports. I’d have to say Mock Trial is my passion. Last year I experienced such a great year, and was able to be a part of the State Champion team. I also got to represent Palmer at the National High School Mock Trial Championship in Indianapolis. We all had a blast, and our countless hours of work paid off with a 14th place finish, the highest placement of any public school at the competition. Apart from school, I volunteer at the Democratic office, the local hospital, and the municipal courthouse in a program called Teen Court. Teen Court is another passion. I’ve volunteered there since seventh grade. We are a non- profit made up of a few staff and hundreds of teen volunteers that sentence first time, misdemeanor teen offenders on the principles of restorative justice. I am currently a member of the Student Advisory Board at Teen Court, and serve as treasurer on the board. Other things I love include, running, hiking, animals, art, and of course clothes! I am so happy to be a new member of COYAC, and I am sure that it will become another passion.
