Allison Looks Up To: “My cousin Amanda Lester has been my role model my entire life. Amanda is the one that got me interested in student council in elementary school. It is such an honor that we were both able to serve as Student Body President at Foothill High School. Her drive and goal setting have been an inspiration to me.”

Allison is Stronger and Wiser Because: “My parents have encouraged me to excel in school my whole life. They worked hard to put themselves through college and expect the same from me and my brother. My parents encouraged me to get a job to learn about working hard and the value of money. I am expected to bring home good grades and earn a good life like they did.”

Part of the Solution: “The societal pressure to make children grow up faster than they should is a major issue facing young adults, especially girls. Their self esteem suffers if they do not look the way society expects them to. I can help by mentoring young girls and showing them how important a good education is and how they can still care about their appearance without sacrificing their education.”
