ALLEGRA HUNT understands the value of individual contribution in keeping a society strong. During her junior year she spent a semester in Washington, DC serving as a student page for Tom Lantos. Allegra stated that “Every day contained precious experiences–attending school in the Library of Congress, working on the House floor, meeting prominent personalities.” A senior at Mills, she is an excellent student and active school and community member. She has volunteered with the San Mateo County Commission on the Status of Women, American Diabetes Association and was a delegate for the MADD national youth summit. She has been appointed the manager of Mock Trial, served three years on the student congress and has given hours of service to the Rotary Interact Club, French Club, and the Dragon Dance team. Allegra is trained as a Peer helper and is a volunteer on the Grief Team, helping students deal with death and tragedy. While in Washington, Allegra faced her own greatest challenge, being diagnosed with diabetes. After beginning the regimen that would become her lifestyle, she immediately became involved with the American Diabetes Association. Allegra has high goals and would like a career in international relations.
