This project will make our community stronger and more united. We will have this memorable event one evening after school so that parents and students may attend. I would like to see this become an annual event, one where students feel honored and privileged to attend.

The grant would be used to purchase native species of plants that attract butterflies, birds and more with a sense of home! In addition the grant will be used to purchase materials for bird feeders and seating areas. Any additional grant funds will be used for watering cans, materials to make recycled wind chimes, and paint for making motivational signs for children.

We will host a World Chimpanzee Day celebration, creating a space for neighbors to come together and learn about the connection between e-waste and chimpanzee conservation.

We're inviting global ‘classrooms’ (can be a physical classroom, before/after-school program, extracurricular program, etc.) to participate in a series of 30-60 minute virtual field trips in July, hosted over the video conferencing software, Zoom. Field trips will feature inspiring individuals, from those starting sustainable social enterprises, to grassroots community organizing, to nonprofit leaders in the environmental field. It is intended to invite under-resourced communities into the global environmental justice conversation, and empower students to develop agency and create change starting in their local community.

I hope to prevent suicide among veterans and first-responders. "The misconception surrounding PTSD is that it is just something you feel after experiencing a horrible situation. This isn’t the case. Most veterans and first responders are familiar with the body’s fight or flight system. It is a physiological reaction that enables your body to react in stressful and threatening situations. After the threat has subsided, the physiological changes return to normal everyday status, because the body is no longer in the threatening situation. When PTSD is truly in effect, this fight or flight effect doesn’t go away and causes a continual feeling of stress, fear, and anxiety. The goal is to change the way the disturbing thoughts affect the person suffering with PTSD and give a resolution to the event. If they can stop feeling anxious, frightened, even paralyzed by the thoughts, then they can resume normal functioning in day-to-day life." My hope is that with the love of the community, we can save their lives, as they have saved, and can continue to save, ours. �We will do this by providing hand-made, hand-written cards to organizations that serve active military personnel, veterans, and first-responders in distress.

The girls of Purposeful Youth Detroit will advertise for the event in Detroit for a month prior to the event. They obtain donations of shoes and hygiene projects all year long to give to the community of Detroit on this day. The event will take place at Milliken State Park in Detroit and will last from 12:00 pm to 5:00 pm. Families of Detroit will have the opportunity to come to the river front and obtain shoes for the whole family!

I am founder of Joy Group, Joy Group is a volunteering organization, with performers (volunteers) ranging from 7 years old to high school students, that I founded and am the current director of. I am also founder of Dreams Quarter, Dreams Quarter is my own student string quartet (two violinists, one violist, and one cellist). The goal of Joy Group & Dreams Quartet is to create a better Omaha community through music and a message of unity, with a focus on the elderly in the Omaha community. We do this through monthly or quarterly performances at various senior living communities across the Omaha Metro. Each of these performances is unique because we believe that each senior living community deserves to have its own special show and the best we can offer after all the work they have contributed during their lifetime to our community. For each of these shows, I have to plan each performance meticulously with a central theme in mind. I first have to reach out to senior living centers sometimes, however, these senior living communities would reach out to me. Then, I plan a certain date for the performance with the schedules of the other performers in mind. I would also plan a central theme for the performance and decide on the pieces of music, relating to the theme, that each performer could play based on their skill level and feedback from previous performances. Sometimes the pieces of music I need doesn’t exist in that skill level, arrangement, or at all. In these instances, I have spent hours arranging new music or composing music. I also plan rehearsals to ensure the whole show goes smoothly. I rehearse my own music and each of the transitions between different pieces to ensure that the performance is interactive with the audience since I’m also the host of the performances. I have had individual practice secessions with individuals that were struggling with the music to ensure everyone was prepared the best for the show. After a few performances, I decided that monthly performances, though a lot of work, weren’t enough to show our appreciation to the elderly community thus I also organize gift drives and personally delivered small tokens of appreciation, like balloons during Thanksgiving or red envelopes during Chinese New Years, to senior living communities. We have also begun making cookies and I would make the deliveries to senior living communities to remind the elderly that we care for them even when we weren’t physically there with them.

We are going to complete this project during our Summer Camp community service week. We have adult volunteers who will supervise and guide children through this service project, following the lead of the project creator, a 5th grade boy. Our project will take approximately 5 days to complete, including scraping the existing paint, planning and stenciling the designs, and painting the murals.
