Hello! My name is Kelsey. I am a 17-year-old senior living in DuPont Washington. I love reading, hiking, running, and eating ice cream. I am involved in cheerleading, choir, leadership, and S2S. I have been an advocate for military children since 6th grade, and I hope to teach about the resilience that comes through the difficulties of military life.
