If you could be any two animals combined, what would they be and why?
A duckling and a snowy owl. I think birds are so beautiful and majestic, and I love the oxymoron of the deadly, elegant snowy owl and the harmless, fuzzy duck. I think it's a pretty good representation of my personality!

If you had to turn your hair into a vegetable, what would it be?
Brussel Sprouts


What's your favorite art supply to use?
Charcoal


What's your favorite book?
Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen 


What made you want to join Hope For Creativity?
I have always been passionate about giving back to the community and working to bring joy to everyone. As a younger member of society, I never felt that there was opportunity for me to really help people and make a difference. Hope for Creativity has given me and many other teenagers that opportunity, and done it in a unique way that is rewarding for those who help and those who are helped. While many organizations focus on bringing those in need life essentials (which is obviously very important) HFC works on bringing a little fun, happiness, and light into the lives of these people who need it more than anyone else. I joined the youth board of HFC when I was nine, and I have never looked back!


What has been your favorite moment so far working with HFC?

My favorite moment with HFC was the first Music-A-Thon in 2010. It was the very first year of HFC, and we were all really young, but really eager! The room was filled with excitement and hope, and it finally felt like it was possible for a small group of kids to make real change. The event brought together the community, and made me realize that, when given the chance, most people want to help others and serve the community.

If you could be any two animals combined, what would they be and why?
I would be a raven and an owl, not only because they're my favorite animals but also because they are both super intelligent creatures and a little bit intimidating when they need to be. I feel like that fits my personality really well, Also, flying would be so much fun!

What's your favorite book?

The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern


What has been your favorite moment so far working with HFC?

I have so many! One moment that sticks out to me the most is our auction reception in 2013 for Engage in Boundless Expression. The party was held very close to my sixteenth birthday, and unbeknownst to me, as a birthday gift, my mom and friends and family had put together a book with letters, cards, drawings and notes from tons of people that I knew professionally and personally. My mom gave it to me on stage, and I normally hate having the spotlight on me, but it was a fun surprise because more than half of the people in the room knew what was going on, except for me! I still look at that book all the time and it's a beautiful reminder of how much I've grown and how much HFC has grown as an organization. Every single day I am overwhelmed with gratitude for the people that have shaped Hope For Creativity over the years, and looking through the book is a nice way to take a step back and look at everything from the outside. It's really profound, and this book is something I'll treasure forever.
