Video transcript

- In high school, I knew that I was supposed to get involved with clubs, but I wasn't really interested in any of the options. I think I was choosing between the cheese club and social committee, and frankly none of those things were things that I was passionate about. So, I decided I should just create opportunities for myself and I should just look for places where I could do things that I wanted to do. And so when my high school was moving campuses, I realized, "Oh, this is something I can do. "I can help coordinate a move. "I can organize movers. "I can move furniture." So I went to the director of my school and said, "Can I help you move this school?" and she said "Sure." So I invited 20 of my friends and we organized the move and that was an opportunity that I'd created for myself and that I later put on a college application.
