Why do you want serve in the positions you’ve selected?

RYLA was a life changing experience for me and I would love to be able to help other people have the same positive experience that I did. I also made great connections as a camper with lots of amazing people and would like the oppurtunity to do so again.

How has your experience as RYLA participante impacted you?

My experience at RYLA opened my eyes to the unique background of each person and know that everyone is deeper than they appear to be on the surface. I personally did not want to attend the camp when I first went but afterwards found out how to be more confident and an overall happier person.

How do you feel you can contribute and grow RYLA?

I believe that I am very good at making connecting with people and making them feel comfortable. I know firsthand that the experience can be stressful and I learned from my counselors how to help with that and I would love the opportunity to be able to give someone else that experience.
