I was born and raised in a smaller town outside of Harrisonburg. I spend a lot of my time helping my grandparents in rural West Virginia or working. Now that I am in college at Chirstopher Newport University, it is a little harder to see them as often since it is a four hour job. My grandparents have help raised and support me. My goal is to get my MD in pediatrics and specialize in oncology and work in rural towns that need more help than most. I know first hand how hard it is for many families with not a lot of resources or contact to large cities. I want to be able to give back to a place that has done so much for me.
Ringing up customers, making the food they ordered, running barista station, plating and sending out food, cleaning tables, floors, bathrooms, and making coffee/other drinks.

Look after a group of 50-60 students at John Wayland Elementary School three to four days a week for three hours a day. Assist in snack time, playing games, coming up with activities, and keeping children entertained. COVID-19 unfortunately shut the business down for a while.
