"Behold the turtle. He makes progress only when he sticks his neck out." –James Bryant Conant
This is my fourth year in SWAT. I joined SWAT after losing my grandma to cancer. I’ve always wanted to change the world for the better, but I just never knew how. Being in SWAT helped me realize I want to create a tobacco-free future. Thanks to my amazing first advisor (Hi Mrs. McCalligan!), my awesome first coordinator (Hey Kayla!), all the other dedicated adults who have helped me along the way, and my passion for the cause, I fell in love with SWAT. I can’t wait to give as much to SWAT as it’s given to me.
