My name is Sijing (Lucy) Zhao, and I am a student in the class of 2018 in Pinewood School. I participate in various activities like the robotic club and interact club, and I participated in CORO’s Exploring Leadership 2016 program, which helps to develop an individual’s civic leadership style. I am also a student volunteer in Mission Be. I am a huge advocate and believer in a complete recovery from mental illness, and I believe that everyone can be free from their own negative mental restraint and all people deserve to be happy. Through volunteering in Mission Be, I hope that more children and teens will be able to receive the relaxation tools from Mission Be and learn how to be happier and more confident.
