Last week, I had the opportunity, no, the honor of volunteering at The Elephant Sanctuary in Tennessee, the nation’s largest natural habitat refuge for elephants who have spent their entire lives being exploited in circuses and zoos.
All the eles who now call this sanctuary “home” are able to live out the rest of their days with the opportunity to roam and explore as they please, play with their friends, cool off in the ponds on warm days, and live as nature intended: freely.
Check out some of my pics from the day:

I'm 15 years old. I love to juggle, bowl, do stage crew, play the piano, and run. I also love to help people out, and give back to the community as much as I can. I am part of a juggling organization that teaches children with disabilities, cancers, and those who are blind how to juggle. I volunteer at an animal shelter in Princeton. I am currently a sophomore in high school right now. Extracurricular activities that I do are: Winter/Spring Track, Stage Crew, and Cross Country. I have a pet dog, his name is Dash, and he is a long-haired Dachshund.
