Katherine Johnson
Class of 2018

My name is Katie Thompson, and I am a rising senior.  I love giving back to my community and meeting some incredible people in the process.  Throughout my life, I have always loved reading and learning about new things everyday.  I am a hard worker and determined to do the things I set my mind to.  Once I commit to something, I try my hardest to follow through and reach my goals every single time.  I have always dreamed of going into business or law, and I look forward to continue working with Leadership Initiatives to make a difference.  This is my second year working with the organization and the experience is as challenging and rewarding as it was in the beginning.

Kevin Kraef
Class of 2018

I am Kevin Kraef, a senior at H.H. Dow High School. I constantly challenge myself every single day by striving for getting the best result possible on everything I do. In school I am taking all Honours, International Baccalaureate, and AP classes and I am involved in the school’s symphonic band as a clarinet and saxophone player as well as a soloist saxophone player in our school’s jazz band. Additionally, I am one of the executive members of the school’s Model United Nations Team and Club as well as involved with the marching band, and a freelance journalist for our school’s newspaper.

I volunteer often at my city’s Community Tennis Centre as either a ball runner or a peewee coach during the summer camps. I also volunteer as a junior counselor at our Community Centre’s summer camp, Camp Neyati.
I tend to be a very passionate person about anything and everything I do and aim to put to highest degree of efficiency and effort into every activity I take part in. Because of this I tend to work very hard in groups and push my team members to go above and beyond so we can collectively achieve anything we are challenged with. Even when I am faced with a problem by myself I think it is important to think in terms of a solution and not solely about the problem.
I am extremely excited to have the chance to take part in the IBAP programme and further my experience in international business, economics and helping out people get a chance in life to achieve great things.

Maria D’agostino
Class of 2018

Maria A. D’agostino, 17, is a junior at Cypress Bay High School, in Weston, Florida. I moved to the United States nine years ago from Caracas, Venezuela and wish to obtain a JD- MBA with a double major in Political Science and International Relations. I participate in many extra-curricular activities; such as, my Debate team, Model United Nations, and the French, English, History, Math, National, and Science- in which I am an officer- Honor Societies. As a straight A student, I participate greatly within my community leading me to receive both The Presidential Award for Service and the Citizenship Award, given to me by Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman-Schultz, for all the work she has done towards her community. Being an immigrant from a third world country, I have seen my fair share of not only poverty, but also the constant violation of human rights which have lead me to fight hard to help the future of any human being not experience or witness the atrocities that I did.
