At age fifteen, I was introduced to Mr. Charles McVean and the Peer Power Foundation. Peer Power provided my first job as well as endless opportunities throughout high school and college. The Foundation set very high standards for me as a student, a tutor, and leader. Peer Power taught me the value of not only excelling academically, but how to be a model citizen and consistently improve the whole person. Through Peer Power, I learned the value of helping others and how to give back to the community in other ways. Throughout my four years at Georgetown, I have made it my goal to give back to the community. The high expectations set by Peer Power have aided me in achieving my goals in receiving a dual degree in International Politics and International Economics. I will soon start a career in government sciences. I know that I would not have made it this far without the direction given to me from Peer Power.
