Carolina Amador is involved in countless communities despite personal responsibilities, deadlines, college, and high school courses. These include UIL, FBLA, the Leo Club, and volunteering at the nonprofit organization Cancer Kids First.
Amador joined the student council because she wanted to help her peers voice their concerns or opinions. Cancer Kids First and the Leo’s Club allow her to help her community. She feels a sense of attachment to the clubs because they allowed her to receive help from others. She wants to be able to repay the favor to her community.
UIL and FBLA give her a chance to ‘unleash my competitive side’ academically. She says they let her relax and gain skills she knows she can use in the future.
“My absolute favorite part of the student council, Leo’s Club, and the Cancer Kids First organization is the fact that I get to help out others,” Amador said. “My favorite part about UIL and FBLA is the competitive rush that I get.”
She said that she would encourage others to consider joining these organizations.
“I would say to them that by being in these organizations, they will not only get to relish the fact that they will make positive changes to their environment, but they will also be able to have lots of fun!”
