I am very passionate about changing the world. Now I don’t mean become someone who will be written down in the history books as Rayna the Great or anything. (That would be pretty cool though). I just want to create a positive difference in other people’s lives whenever and wherever I can. My family has always given back where we can, so I learned from my parents at a young age the importance of volunteering and donating to multiple causes. One of my favorite things I have done is the Color Run with my mom.
I have cut my hair for cancer twice and will likely do it again someday.
High school was where Key Club came in. Holy Rosary’s branch of this international club started February 2, 2012. The club has completed many projects already and is (I hope) continuing to change our community, country, and the world. I was involved with putting on annual seniors’ galas to honor the elderly in our community, sorting food and baking cookies for the Food Bank, and volunteering at the Muck Run and Relay for Life. In my grade 12 year, we partnered with Our Village Uganda to help this wonderful community with their goals of empowering, educating, and equipping themselves with the tools they need to live great lives. I am extremely proud to have been a part of this club for my high school years and will continue to help others for the rest of my life in any way I can.
I am now part of the University of Saskatchewan Kinsmen/Kinette Club, and we are definitely making a positive local impact with the events we have planned, with a special focus on raising funds for Telemiracle. We have annual volleyball and curling tournaments to raise money for Telemiracle, as well a bake sale and hockey draft. I participated in Trick or Eat to collect items for the Food Bank, and we put out big boxes for a winter clothing drive.
