The Club has challenged me to become a better person and it has pushed me to do things out of my comfort zone, such as trying softball. - Sydney Hamsher, 2021 Nappanee Club Youth of the Year
Sydney Hamsher shares how the challenges of this past year. At 16, Sydney reflected on the challenges of eLearning during the Spring of 2020. She found herself struggling with anxiety and depression. She relies on her organizational skills to plan and adjust to the demands of remote learning. She wants to make it 'easier for young adults to be organized' and to develop organizational skills so 'they can feel better about who they are as a person.' Sydney credits the Nappanee Club for preparing her for the future by providing programs like Level Up, Keystone, Torch, Junior Staff, and STEM Mentoring. She looks forward to applying the skills she has learned in completing a job application, ways to find a job, professionalism, and money management. Congratulations Sydney!
