My sophomore year, I spearheaded our effort to raise money for LGBTQ youth homeless shelters. We created and sold t-shirts, painted faces, and handed out flyers at the 2015 White Squirrel Festival, bringing in $600 for the Trinity Shelter.

The Brevard High School Acceptance Club was founded on the principles of loving one another, creating a better school climate, and spreading compassion and acceptance.

My role was to be a mentor leader during Saturday sessions. From 8am to 4pm, we would lead 12 - 15 students through activities to learn about college, or just work on important skills such as writing, reading and research.
For their marketing strategies, St. Jude uses celebrity stars connection as well as good marketing decisions and programs to attract the consumers and businesses. This type of marketing brings in hundreds of millions of dollars each year for the hospital.
