The purpose of the Junior Ambassadors is to advise the AFF Board of Directors in matters that increase awareness of AFF’s mission and recruit volunteers among school-aged youth, raise funds, and develop future leaders.
Junior Ambassadors Make A Difference
Applications for the 2021/22 team are currently being accepted through June 20, 2021.
My name is Lauren Abler and I am going to be a junior at Kingwood High school the 2019-2020 school year. I am a starting defender on the Kingwood varsity soccer team. I’m also apart of many clubs and organizations such as NHS, HOSA, Beta club and Spanish Honor Society. I also play club soccer for Challenge. This will be my second year with Addis Faith Junior Ambassadors. Last year I was VP of the ambassadors and this year I am VP of Growth and Development.
I am involved in AFF because, although I have not experienced it first hand, I have seen how pediatric cancer can affect families and impact multiple lives. It is heart breaking to see, but I believe AFF is contributing greatly to finding a cure. Although we are not adults, there are still multiple ways us teens can spread awareness and raise money for pediatric cancer.
My name is Sydney Ferris and I’m 17 years old. I got to Kingwood High school and am involved in a few clubs and organizations. I love to travel and I’m my happiest when I’m at the beach :))
I’ve been involved with Addis Faith Foundation from the start because my parents were very close to Amber and Tony whenever Addi was diagnosed. Additionally, My older sister Mandi had a brain tumor when she was 5, so I’ve seen first-hand the effects childhood cancer can have on families. Because of this I’ve wanted to be involved in an organization to help kids and families in need and AFF is the perfect place for doing just that!
