What are your passions?

3rd question of the Be You Collection

 

Kaylei McGarrett: Helping others! As you can probably get from all that I’ve mentioned in previous sections!

Chloey Rudy: I’m always passionate about anything related to my sister. She loves softball, so I practice every day with her to do that. If she needs help on her essay, I read everything and then help her with it.

Matthew Moon: Right now I am passionate about taekwondo and becoming stronger!

Ella Moon: I am passionate about my family and friends. I don’t know where I would be without them because they are so supporting and uplifting and in the situation that I’m in, that’s really important.

Jan Ballbé: I like the mountains a lot and I enjoy helping people too.

Grey Chapin: I am passionate about helping people. Through this website and fundraising, I have had the opportunity to do so for most of my life. With the help of my family, I started the Purple Lemonade Stand when I was six. Since then, we have hosted them annually, raising money for Sanfilippo Syndrome research. Hearing about new clinical trials has been a very rewarding way to see our fundraising pay off and it motivates me to continue hosting this stand each year.

Nic Bouzakis: I am passionate about wrestling in honor of my brother.
