us would go into the AI class-
room during our lunch hour and
in between classes, just to be
with the kids. By December, I had
such a love for these kids that I
wanted to do something more.
With some help, I wrote an essay
and a grant application. Within a
month, the AI program received
a $500 grant to buy sensory toys
for the students who had autism.
This got even more kids involved,
and the community service class
doubled in size."

Learn all about
Federation's Teen Mission to Israe

What about your recent fund-rais-
ing efforts for Mothers Against
Drunk Driving (MADD)?

TEENS
CURRENTLY
IN GRADES
9-12 ARE
ELIGIBLE

"My dad and I were very close to
the Weinstein family so we decid-
ed to become team leaders for a
nationwide 5K walk sponsored
by MADD on Sept. 24. I organ-
ized my own team, called Step
Forward, and we raised about
$1,100. My dad was one of the
highest fund-raisers in the coun-,
try. His team, the Weinstein
Project, raised over $9,000."

Bloomfield Hills

Does your future include working
with children with special needs?

"Definitely. I want to become a
special education teacher when I
grow up, with a certification in
autism. In the meantime, I'm tak-
ing a course at the Judson Center
so I can babysit for children with
autism."
