Kristiana 2

A junior at Andrew Jackson High School in Jacksonville, Florida, Kristiana is a varsity cheerleader and the secretary of her school’s HOSA-Future Health Professionals student organization.  One of Kristiana’s major passions is helping people, especially when it gets her involved in the community.  In September alone she participated in four different volunteer activities: a blood drive, an Upward Bound gardening project, Brides with Breast Cancer, and volunteered at her local wildlife sanctuary – The Catty Shack Ranch.  In the midst of all of this community service and fall football cheerleading, Kristiana is maintaining near perfect grades and taking college classes at Jacksonville University (on Saturdays!) as a high school student.  Wow, that’s dedication!

Kristiana has big plans for her future. She already has a field of interest, midwifery, and with her executive position in HOSA, she is practically primed for college! She has been taking collegiate level credits in biology at Jacksonville University, since this summer, to get a jump on her career as a health professional.

On top of all that, this month, Kristiana was accepted into a People to People Ambassador Program in Japan for the summer of 2015.  While she’s there, she’ll get to earn even more college credits! She’s also just started a fundraising Mission to help her make this educational experience a reality. You can find out more about why Kristiana deserves September’s scholarship award at her Student Page.
