Throughout the story Chris believes that “Empty pockets will allow a greater sense of wealth, why contain yourself like any other book on the shelf?” as Eddie Vedder sings. Because of this, after his college graduation, he donated all of his money to a very impactful charity. He did this all on his own, without anyone else knowing.

Through my position, I have begun initiatives to sponsor education on a local and global scale. I launched a new program to match at-risk teens with NHS members for tutoring and mentorship.

In the “Interview with Alex Lin” He and his team WIN (westerly innovations network) collected 25 thousand or more computers in a month to recycle. Also they set up seven refurbished computer stations around the world so kids could have them. To illustrate, he is not just raising money for collecting computers but he is also raising awareness to e-waste because many people did not know about it but now they do. Those are some great examples of teen activists that speak out.
Due to my completion of 300 hours serving my community, AmeriCorps granted me a scholarship for $1,671 to go towards my education.

Since I was ten years old, I have been a member of the Young Marines, a program dedicated to the enrichment of youth. Aside from my family and school, this organization has had an incredible impact on my life, not only providing me with many unique and amazing experiences, but by shaping the foundation of my character by instilling in me the three core principles of the Young Marines: Discipline, Leadership, and Teamwork and also by emphasizing the importance of community service. I have had many amazing and unique experiences as a Young Marine which included the challenges of promotion to become the senior ranking officer, learning many new skills such as CPR, teaching Drug Demand Reduction, leading and mentoring the members of the Unit, going on encampments and traveling. In my sophomore year, my Unit Commander, a Korean War veteran, selected me to travel with him to Seoul. Every few years he chooses a Young Marine to take to South Korea based on merit.
I learned something very important as I visited and did research on Palm Beach Atlantic University; it is a place where the spiritual aspect of my life could be an integral part of my college experience.

I look forward to intertwining my Christian beliefs with my academic and social endeavors at PBA, knowing that God has his hand on my shoulder leading me in the right direction. The morals and policies of the school fit me as an individual because I choose to be involved with activities that contribute to my personal and spiritual development.
