Zoe was awarded the title of AP Scholar by College Board her junior year, and is waiting to hear her results from the past school year.
Over the past four summers Zoe has volunteered at King’s Camp, a Christian summer camp, as part of their works study. During this time work study would cook and serve food as well as cleaning the campground and setting up for activities. Starting at the beginning of the 2020-2021 school year Zoe will be trained to be a counselor at this same camp. It is here where Zoe was able to come to terms with PKU and fully embrace it into her life.
