Hello, my name is Josie Stanek. I am sixteen years old. I am in the tenth grade at Faith Lutheran High School. I am a part of the cheer team and am currently participating in my first year of softball. Over the last summer, I participated in a program called “Trial by Peers”, where I learned about the judicial system and learned the basics of how to be a lawyer. In school, I take a class called “Mark 10:14 Mentors”. Basically each student pairs up with another student that has an intellectual disability, and we help them with their class and schoolwork. I am planning on volunteering as a camp councilor this summer. When I grow up, I think I would like to be a teacher. I love helping people learn, and that’s why I had such a good time teaching children not to bully in my kid-talks. I am so excited to represent The Moose Lodge for the state of Nevada. I am looking forward to the trip to Boston! Thank you so much for this opportunity.
