The Nomination: “Kamdyn Price works with a peers mentor club helping kids by teaching them cooking cleaning yoga etc. She also dances & is in the poms team at her school.”
What inspired you to join a Peer Mentor Club? What do you find to be the most important influence you have on your peers?
I wanted to join the Peer Mentor Club because a few of my friends were in it and had told me how much fun it was to become friends with students at the school that you wouldn’t usually talk to. I’m a friend to them and I’m someone that they can come to if they need help or if they need to talk to someone about something.
What are some of the things you enjoy teaching the most in the Peer Mentor Club and why?
My favorite would either be yoga, or how to make stress balls. I liked teaching yoga because it was a fun way to get my class on their feet and moving around so they could do something different than usual with their day and have fun at the same time. I also liked making stress balls because my whole class loved playing with them and thought that they had felt so cool and they were so excited that they got to make them.
You are involved in so many activities and are a good role model for others. Who has been your mentor and helped you along the way?
My mentor that has helped me along the way would be my mom. My mom is always so busy helping my brother and I with school and after school activities. She’s also shown me that it is ok to be busy and you can make time for things if you really want to.
As a dancer and member of the Pom Team, what do you find most challenging?
What I find most challenging would probably be time management because if I’m not a Pom during the week I’m usually at dance. It gets hard to balance them with school work when they’re everyday but somehow, I find time to do it.
Where do you see yourself in 5 years after high school?
I think that five years from now I’ll probably still be in college studying psychology, and hopefully a part of their Pom team if the college has one.
