After my first ‘because I said I would’ chapter meet up, I was hooked! I love the mission and philosophy of this group. As a special education teacher, I always encourage my students to be kind to others and volunteer in their community. I’m very excited to be on the leadership team to spread awareness about this organization and build a better community!
I joined Because I said I would because I love leading, and being involved volunteering, and doing what I can to make a difference to my community this makes me feel like a leader. Some fun facts about me are I love playing basketball, baseball, softball, and throwing the shot put. I am athletic and I love sports. I also love watching movies and traveling. In the future, I plan on doing photography and designing also owning my own clothes business. I also think about becoming a physical therapist for the NBA or WNBA. That is why you see me wearing scrubs in the picture above because right now and as I continue highschool I am taking pre-nursing. I plan to make a difference in my community so I’m starting now.
Hello! My name is Michelli Phinnessee. I am a junior at Buchtel CLC in Akron, Ohio. I joined because I said I would because I wanted to get both myself and others in my community involved in the positivity that this program brings. I also hope to better myself while doing it!
