Class of 2021

Hello! My name is Barbara Lomeli Gil, I am 15 years old and a sophomore in high school. I am a first year member of Leadership Initiatives and I am so excited to embark in this program. I am in my second year of high school, and I serve in the leadership class at LWHS. Last year I served my school as a Sophomore Secretary and this year I am overjoyed serving as a General Commissioner. Being part of student government has showed me all the different ways you can help your school and community. Helping and serving others is something that I have come to realize I am very passionate about. I have enjoyed serving at my high school and I am very excited to serve in another way through Leadership Initiatives. Being in high school, I’ve started to think what I would like to pursue in my future and as of now I am interested in the medical field and law.

Our Solutions

Solution 1

Our solution is to improve Yahuza Ibraham’s photo studio business by hosting a fundraiser to benefit our business partner. Our fundraising consists of selling stickers to family and friends. Our goal for this fundraiser is to raise approximately $100. With this money, we can help him with his style and technique of photography. We can also help Ibraham to purchase sophisticated lenses. We hope to help him keep track of his business transactions and spending in his community.
