Student Ambassador, 11th grade

My responsibilities as an ambassador: My responsibility is to lead by example, be responsible, be a great representative for GEAR UP Birmingham and to speak of opportunities for students within GEAR UP.
Why I decided to become a student ambassador: To be a voice, a leader, and for the experience.
A short fun fact about myself: I am a Pisces and I love basketball!
