LeadAmerica is one of the nation's educational leaders in personalized experiential learning designed to better prepare middle and high school students for their transition to college and their future career. Sena believes the most valuable thing she learned was that it's not what you do at the conference, it's what you do after you leave.
The experience inspired her to start the first ballroom dancing club at Algonquin and expand her service within the community, especially at the volunteer-driven Community Harvest Project farm, where 100% of produce is donated to the Worcester Food Pantry.
Sena has now set her sights on attending the Medicine and Healthcare Conference at the University of California, Los Angeles. The experience offers students the opportunity to explore their future path and to discover what inspires them the most. Students gain valuable knowledge and the experience of real college life and participate in simulations as part of a healthcare team and stimulating workshops with professional leaders in the medical field.
At UCLA, students are introduced to the EMT profession and also visit the California Science Center and explore state-of-the-art exhibits on anatomy, ecosystems, groundbreaking innovations and more. Priscilla hopes to become a doctor so she can utilize her knowledge in a way that could affect hundreds of people's lives positively.
