Goals & Aspirations: “Huge goals for me to accomplish are competing in the Olympics and becoming a doctor. I can see myself on the track or the court, training like never before.”

Accomplishments Most Proud Of: “Making the varsity basketball team as a freshman, qualifying in four events in regionals as a freshman, making 2nd Team All State for volleyball after only playing two seasons, and attending State for the 300 Hurdles last year.”

Chalon Looks Up To: “The person I look up to most is my mom. She had to raise seven of us by herself. She always taught me to keep on going and never stop fighting. I know if she could handle taking care of all of us, then I know that I can handle little pains.”

Part of the Solution: “An issue I think teens have in today’s world is confidence. Some of us get told we can never be this or would never be able to do that. But what I learned is that you don’t have to be the very best as long as you put your heart into it. I can try to change things by being a positive person and letting people know that anything is possible.”
