My CSI, The Give Hope Project, collects items to donate to local Ronald McDonald Houses and shelters, and to put together baskets to be able to give back to families who have children in the hospital. I plan to raise as much money for my nonprofit that I possibly can and give back to more than 200 families.

What do you enjoy doing for fun? I like to read. Dancing competitively and on the sidelines, volunteering in different clubs around my school and hanging out with my friends. I value spending time with my family the most.
