"My role model is my mom. It's just her and me and she's taught me a lot. She's funny and crazy and she knows how to put her foot down when I'm acting up. She's kind and awesome in every way. Just seeing all the struggles she's been though and seeing how decisions can impact your life has helped me. She signed me up for the Earn-a-Bike program when I was 13 and I've been on the Youth Board for a couple years now. I'm learning about responsibility and time-management and that kind of thing. I'm going to go to college after high school and then I want to be a State Trooper in the K9 unit one day. I guess I want to be a police officer because I like helping people and putting others before myself."
