"My name is Kristen Powers and I am an awesome teenager in Chapel Hill, North Carolina, GO HEELS! I have grown up with animals all of my life and I currently live on a farm with twenty of them! I am passionate about not only animals, but the environment and the obesity epidemic. I love to read and write, but I have so much finding time for it because I run three environmental clubs. I believe that we all have the ability within ourselves to make a difference in our community, to those we love most. So get out there and live life!"
