Western High School
International Business Internship Program
Our Life-Changing Project
Class of 2022
My name is Amanda Mananzan, and I am a freshman at Western High School. In my free time, I enjoy dancing and singing, as well as listening to music and hanging out with my friends.
I have an older brother and am the only one left in my family to graduate high school and excited to go to college to start what I really want to do in life. I love to cook and bake because I always get to try new recipes and to see how they came out and what other people think about it. I am currently in the HOSA program at my high school because I feel that is program will benefit me when I start applying for colleges. I am also in CHOC (Children Helping Other Children). I also do cheerleading for my school which we cheer for football and basketball. When am older I would like to do something in the medical field with eyes which would be ophthalmology because I had eyes issues since I was 7 years old and went through many treatments to help with non-cancerous tumors in both of my eyes.
The International Business Internship Program is the first chance I’ve had to be in such a globally expansive program, and I am beyond honored to work with my closest friends to aid a hospital in a place I never thought I’d have an impact on. I believe that if we can help someone as far away from us as they are, there’s no telling what awaits us in the future!
Class of 2022
My name is Marc Zavarro. I am the leader of a national charity known as CHOC (children helping other children) and have been a leader in it for 4 years and counting. I attend Western High School in Davie Florida and have career interests in Politics and Business.
When not in school, Marc dedicates multiple hours a week to the Charity that I am a leader in. We go to hospitals to help kids that are terminally ill and have even had large projects such as building a school in Nigeria for orphans whose parents were killed by terrorism. Besides taking part of the Charity, Marc is involved in involved in Debate. I dedicate over four hours a week and have competed in multiple national events. I now am a co-president of the club based off the Charity I run in Western High School. I have a 4.7 GPA average and am trying to go into a career dealing with public speaking such as Politics.
The reason I joined IBIP is the difference we as kids can make. When running the charity, it has become clear that kids such as myself can make a difference in the world and help others that are not as fortunate as ourselves. When I was given the chance to apply for IBIP, I immediately put in an application so my team and I could help make a difference.

Hailey Love is an extremely driven individual. Hailey enjoys helping others and making sure everyone is treated equally wherever they go. She believes strongly in taking action to help solve problems, while still showing dignity and kindness.
Hailey is a member of her high school debate team and competes across the nation. Some of her competitions take her to prestigious colleges like Harvard and Yale. Hailey is also part of a medical skills and services program at her school where she learns about the human anatomy, different diseases, different treatment options, and how medicine has developed over time. Hailey also donates her time at a Kosher food pantry helping to package food deliveries, shop with customers, and log the inventory. Dancing is also something Hailey enjoys participating in because she not only feels that it keeps her healthy, but she also learns about comradery, team leadership, and how to perform best under pressure. In years to come, Hailey hopes to turn her passions for helping others and working in the medical field into living by becoming a cardiac surgeon.
Hailey is excited to join the IBIP program because while participating in it she has the ability to do everything she loves. Hailey will work in a team and have the opportunity to constantly hear other points of views on issues, she will help the people who need support and advice the most, and build new friendships along the way. It’s for these reasons that Hailey is thrilled she gets to be a part of something as special as the IBIP program.
