I am one of the two children of Jessica and David. I am in 7th grade at Glacier Creek Middle School (in Middleton, Wisconsin) and will be turning 13 on August 4th. I love to play card and board games (mostly Magic the Gathering or chess) and to read! I volunteer at the nursery at Blackhawk and have been on a much smaller scale trip called Madison Missions where my group and I volunteered to do many things: from delivering meals to those in need, to helping out at the community center, to pulling invasive garlic mustard from natural areas in the city. I have enjoyed all of these experiences and want to do more to help others, that is why I applied for this trip.
