My faith has given me the drive to better myself. I do this at school, home, and with my friends. I am a part of an organization called Challenge. This program is associated with Regnum Christi, which means, Christ Reigns. In Challenge, we encounter Christ as our best friend, along with our personal Lord and Savior. Every summer I am a camp counselor at the Challenge Camp in St. Louis, Missouri. I have been a Challenge leader for four years. I plan on giving as a missionary. But for the past four summers, I have been a part of the Prayer and Action Summer Missions. In this program, youth go to a home and help out wherever you are needed. I have scraped and painted houses, done yard work, and influenced many people with my giving spirit. I value my faith as my number one priority in life.
