Zoe O’Donnell 9 is passionate about politics and Girl Scouts. In the future, she hopes to become a Political Science major and work in foreign and domestic political positions.
“Activism is a huge part of my life. I want to be the change that I want to see in the world. What I do is very important to me; my life’s mission is to make the world a better place. And politics seems like the best way for me to do that, and I enjoy it as well. However, I started in Girl Scouts. It helped me with understanding the world and helped me with public speaking. My parents have always supported me throughout everything and think I’m very lucky for that. So when I could work on more ‘adult’ issues, I was ready. When the 4-A bond was attempting to be passed, I helped campaign for it and I published writings about my experience as a student in District 38. I think I have impacted the world so far, but I can do so much more in the future. I believe that people are never too young to make a difference.”
