Terra Nova High School senior Kristin Costello has been dedicated to making the world a better place since she was eight years old and wrote a letter to then President Bill Clinton about her hopes to make the world a better place. His advice to stay in school and do her part was the inspiration that led to an early dedication to volunteer service. From her first middle school volunteer efforts in the Project Pride Club to her current role as president of Interact, a community service club, Kristin has participated in a diverse array of projects, from American Cancer Society cancer walks, to canned food drives and activities at local convalescent hospitals, beach cleanup and raising funds for charities. She also volunteers as a “Best Buddy” to a mentally disabled student.
Kristin excels academically and currently serves as the senior class secretary. She dedicates her life to helping others and is not afraid to strive for what she wants. Kristin also loves to sing and hopes to help others through her music some day.
For such a busy young woman, she has set high goals for herself, yet always has time and energy to help those less fortunate. To Kristin, volunteerism has always been the way to make a difference and to change the world for the better.
