As a camper, Empow was the only camp I liked. I loved the options it gave and I loved to have the ability to choose what you wanted to do. I love the staff and everyone is always friendly and accepting. I felt at home at Empow.

I love working with kids and helping them on their projects. I love seeing them happy and I think it’s great to help kids get creative. They really enjoy themselves and they’re a pleasure to work with.

In my spare time, I work with clay and make figurines. I also draw a lot and I love theater. I read comics all the time and like anyone I enjoy going online, but also enjoy going outside with friends and being active.
