Seeing General Mills face of gratitude inspired me to start my own organization devoted to helping Veterans “WAVE THE FLAG.” Continuing my new tradition, in 2008 as President of FBLA, I conducted another walk. This time all preparation was easier since I knew everything that I needed to get. I sent letters to the herald, posted it up on a website, and promoted around the school. This year the walk was held on November 22, 2008 where we had some additional sponsors, a stage, maps, more performances, and as another great inspiration Senator. At the registration table we handed out flags to wave while walking. At different corners we had set up coolers with water for hydration, and had key facts all along the trial. The great result has led to a total of $560 for both years and I don’t want it to stop there. I hope to continue this organization all through my life and being able to make a difference, to look at a veterans face and tell them I’m here for you. This project that started from blank has led me to realize the many hardships that veterans face and made me realize that all it takes is one leader. For FBLA, I was able to present my whole project at the state level and reached 5th place. I wasn’t looking for the best, I was looking for people to read my project, to realize that a young sixteen year old girl can create some thing, even if it doesn’t change the world, it changes a hospital, over 400 veterans, every single year.
