"Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much." ― Helen Keller

I joined SWAT because I wanted to be a part of the powerful movement that we represent. I believe that if America’s youth all stand together, we can create a chain reaction and help stop the use of tobacco products all over the world. This is my first year as a member, and I’m really glad I joined this amazing organization because the people that we work with are so helpful — they make you feel like family as soon as you join the organization. My favorite SWAT moment would definitely be this year at the Christmas Festival, when we walked around getting as many adults and teens to sign the smokeless tobacco pledge cards with the middle school SWATters. This was a great opportunity to see the younger generation’s views on tobacco as well as for them to see the older generation's views, all at once. My favorite superhero is Captain America because he stands for justice and defends the weak. Much how our movement may represent a small percentage of those campaigning against tobacco, but as we come together, we are stronger. My favorite hobbies are helping out my friends and family by tutoring them after school and singing in my church choir; my favorite song is “How Great is Our God.”
