My Best All Peoples Story: One of my best All Peoples stories is when I was a camp counselor at Camp Joe Ide.  I was in charge of the youngest group of girls and one of our activities was Archery.  I had a little girl that didn’t want to do it.  I talked to her and tried to convince her to try it at least once.  She ended up trying it.  She loved it, and she won a medal in the archery competition.  Later on that day she said to me, “Thank you for pushing me to try new things!”

Hobbies: Reading, Sleeping, Netflix
