cwalsh44: Helping Students With Disabilities

Girl of the Moment Winner: @cwalsh44 In my past years in Middle School, during my free period, instead of going outside, hanging out with my friends, or getting a head start on homework, I would go to what is called the "guided room" at my school. The guided room is a classroom that fosters a program for kids my age with disabilities such as Autism and Down Syndrome. I would go there everyday. Some days, we would all cook together while other days we would do crafts together. I developed a very strong relationship with one of the kids and his mother has thanked me numerous times for helping him. I have since graduated from Middle School and I am trying now to create a program like this now in High School. Name: Caitlin Age: 14 Interview 1.

romeooromeo: The Kitchen Queen

Girl of the Moment Winner: @romeooromeo Over the past six months, I have had the opportunity to volunteer at a local camp. It's a christian camp that has a lot of activities that go on around the year, and I've worked in the kitchen at some of those times. Working in the kitchen is a lot of fun, but it includes hard work as well. There's prep, serving and cleanup to do. Making pizzas is always a lot of fun. Eggs? Not so much. The pans are always such a hassle to clean, afterwards my arms feel like noodles (if you ever clean four of them, you'll know what I mean). There's always jokes going around the kitchen, contests to see who can scrub a pan the fastest, occasional water fights with the hoses from the sinks... I've learned to do a lot of things and I feel so welcome there. Sure, you don't always get appreciated by the people you're serving, but the feeling of helping out is worth a lot more. Name: Abby Age: 15    Interview with @romeooromeo 1. What were some of the challenges you faced working in the kitchen? Waking up really early. I'm not really a morning person, but I had to wake up early every morning to prep   2. What was your favourite part about volunteering? Being able to volunteer with my friends. Having friends with you always makes things fun.   3. What were some of the things you learned there? I learned to be a better servant. You really have to listen, to learn.

yogner18: This Girl of the Moment is an Activist in the Making

Girl of the Moment Winner: @yogner18 As the 2013-2015 acting president of my schools' Social Action Club, I led us to raising over $1,000 for a well in Eastern Africa. It was truly a team effort; we sold arts and crafts that we made, raised awareness for the issue by taking a vow of silence and raising money for each hour we didn't talk, and so many other cool things. As an incentive for the work we did, we got to attend WeDay Seattle and we learned a lot of amazing things about change-making. We hope to raise enough money to build an entire well ($5,000) and raise local and global awareness about the issue.               Name: Mehar Age: 13 Interview with @yogner18 1. What made you decide to raise money for a well in Africa? When Social Action Club was born, we all agreed on raising money for wells in Africa because water is what controls many other important issues including water-born diseases and equal education rights for both males and females. 2. Has your “Social Action Club” been involved in any other fundraisers? As well as raising money for a well in Eastern Africa, we've also put together school assemblies, collected over 600 pounds of food for the local food bank, and organized a TEDx event at our school with the theme being Youth Who Are Changing the World. 3. What sort of “change-making” did you learn about at WeDay? At WEDay, we were inspired by a combination of live motivational speakers and celebrities who taught

Vldrlng: Stunning Seamstress

Meet Girl of the Moment: @Vldrlng I like to sew and crochet, but one of the things I like to do the most is make purses out of recycled can tabs! I ask my friends to save up can tabs from whenever they drink a can of pop, and once I have enough collected, I stitch them together with brightly colored yarn, sew on a matching zipper, and crochet a strap. The straps I make for them are removable, too - I always include a wrist strap and a shoulder strap. If you want, you can take off the strap entirely and use it as a wallet or makeup bag! In the future I plan on selling these, but right now I've only made them for myself and friends/family. I've even thought about teaching some of my friends to do this with me, so they're easier (and more fun!) to make. I'd also like to try making other things with recycled can tabs - they're really cool!   Age: 14 Name: Valerie   Interview with @Vldrlng 1. When did you become interested in crocheting? I've been interested in things like crocheting for as long as I can remember, but I only started learning around 4 years ago. 2. What made you decide to make purses out of can tabs? I saw some expensive purses in a gift shop made out of can tabs, and I decided to try and make my own! 3. Have you ever crocheted anything besides purses and wallets? Oh, definitely! I've made hats and scarves as well, and I'm working
