Katelyn Lee

What Superhero would you like to be and why?
Service shaped my life. It has inspired me to become the President of the National Charity League and a bible study mentor. I plan to become a doctor. This year, I will attend a summer school medical program at UCLA and represent California at the Congress of Future Medical Leaders.

What according to you is a true friend?
I love to laugh! I have always had laughter in my home; the best laughs come from the silliest things. Laughing not only makes you live longer, but it also boosts your immune system, lowers stress, decreases pain, and relaxes your muscles. It really is the best medicine!

How do you handle criticism?
I love to travel; give me a destination and Im there! Ive gotten stuck in a blizzard in Mammoth, stranded in an airport in Hawaii, hydroplaned on the Georgia state highway, hiked a glacier in Alaska, snorkeled with an octopus in the Caribbean, and climbed the Great Wall of China!

When was the last time you tried something new?
I am lucky that I go to one of the top college prep schools in the nation. Its taught me the value of working hard, has inspired me to push myself and develop strong leadership skills. I have become CPR certified and am a member of the Varsity tennis team and dance team.

Do you think crying is a sign of weakness or strength?
Born on July 4th, I am definitely independent! Ive been exposed to many things in my life and have faced adversity and challenges. Im a positive person and those experiences sparked creativity and interest in many different things. I wanted to paint, to play piano, make my high school dance team!
