Bio

Hi! My name is Kendis Green and I aspire to become an informatic pharmacist. Once I get there after completing my residency, I will own my own unique pharmacy as well. I've been involved in several organizations at Fairfield Central High School including cross country, soccer, student government associations, beta club, academic challenge, JROTC, and National Honors Society of Dance Arts. Outside of school, I am a part of Million Women Mentors where I am a state board member that encourages young females to take an interest in the field of STEM and potentially get into those careers. My own interests include baking, photography, arts in general, history, reading, learning new languages, and travelling. I am currently ranked number 3 at my school and have already received my associates degree in science and general studies from Midlands Technical College.

    Some people might not think much about the actual trip to school. But for some, it may be nearly as painful as torture—and I'm not just referring to having to get out of bed in the morning and face the day. I'm talking about feeling the chilly breeze and gusts against your skin when there's nothing you can do about it. Many students in schools, particularly those in rural areas, lack access to basic winter clothing items like sweaters or pants without holes in them. My mother has several anecdotes to tell my siblings and me about how, on numerous occasions when she was on bus duty, she saw students who were sent in only their shorts and without jackets and were forced to spend the remainder of the day in a freezer-like classroom. If they do have jackets at all, it's usually because an older sibling tried to keep them warm. At other times, some households would need to seal gaps in their walls with their extra garments to stay warm. My grandma experienced that as well during her childhood. We took matters into our own hands as a family, which motivated me to consider founding an organization. We gathered our old clothing and gave it to our mother so she could give it to her students. That helped those kids with their problems, but it's not a solution for everyone. After becoming enlightened, I devised a scheme in which a group of individuals would gather reusable clothes from various areas, deliver them to the school in tidy bundles, and set up a closet similar to a costume shop where the kids could "shop" for what they needed. To spread this throughout my district, I thought about collaborating with other organizations such as local Beta Clubs to get more people involved and have others contribute to the community as well. I could accomplish this once I genuinely had all the necessary supplies. For the time being, though, it's a good start to just provide clothes to anyone who appears to need them. Still, I'm not new to this whole process. Since I was a little child, I have always volunteered to collect toys and clothing for charitable causes, such as the Shoebox Project at my church, Families Helping Families in my own home, and the Angel Tree through the schools. I've always enjoyed lending a hand to people, especially those in my community. So now, through clubs like Student Government Associations, Leo Club, Beta Club, and just on my own, I try to do as much as I can to make the world a better place.

    Popularity always wins out over merit in the clubs I belong to, including Leo Club. In this case, my title is simply "representative," but my behavior does not reflect that. For instance, since this was the first year of the club, we had to brainstorm during one of our sessions for an activity that would both be feasible and beneficial in uplifting the spirits of our students and the community. The majority of the officers were at a loss for words, while the rest were more interested in brainstorming ideas that would make the kids laugh than in offering any insight into the community. So my sister, a well-deserved officer, brainstormed on what could bring the citizens together and give them a chance to thrive as one and the lightbulb lit up. We devised the Great Griffin Grab, a variation on The Big Grab, in which participants would gather, erect various stations, and offer for sale or donation their handmade or vintage things. We all agreed to do this, and my sister and I took the initiative to run the remainder of the meeting as soon as we got to work. We weren't sure what more we needed to do because neither of us had ever attended one of these events in person. We inquired about the opinions and general additions of the others. In the end, we partitioned the board according to the event schedule, the things we could supply, including chairs and tables, and the specifications of the suppliers. We also have a portion set out for entertaining extras like games, food trucks, and music. After determining what we needed, we divided up the kids into places they had to go, individuals we needed to talk to, and decorations we needed to make. The teachers felt they knew the finest places to call, so we even let them continue with the food. Even though the planning took weeks, we seemed to move quickly and effectively through the process. When the Great Griffin Grab finally happened, my sister and I were among with just nine of the club's twenty students and all of our advisors. However, it didn;t matter because we quickly arranged the tables in the gym and in front of the school, assigning people to their assigned roles such as helpers, poster spinners, and table monitors. We were ready for every citizen that soon emerged and set up, far more than I had anticipated for our first event. Assisting everyone with setting up their stuff and then watching them interact with the customers was such a blast. Handmade jewelry and bracelets, baked delicacies, and old furniture were all available at the stations. We even had support from a nearby fish fry business. Everything about the event was fantastic, and I was thrilled to her that everyone had a great time. They were so enthralled that they kept asking, even weeks after, when we would do it again. It was incredible to watch everyone gather at an event we planned for them, grinning, and wanting more. What I especially loved was the fact that even with only a few people, we all pulled through, had fun, and did phenomenal hosting. I genuinely felt as though I had done something to help the indiviaduals I care about. With the disheartening health crisis going on with smaller town, it makes me want to do even more. As a future pharmacist, I want to give back and I plan to do it through serving this rural community and breaking racial disparities within the field of medicine.
