"With great power comes great responsibility" – from the movie Spider-Man

I am in my senior year at Okeechobee High School. I have been a part of my high school's SWAT chapter since my freshman year and am currently the president. I have been involved in several major tobacco use prevention activities over the past 3 years. This includes receiving a proclamation from the Mayor of Okeechobee for Tobacco Free Florida week and a proclamation from the Board of County Commissioners for Okeechobee County for Through with Chew week. My SWAT involvement is also comprised of several events including my school’s Club Rush, the city’s Health and Safety Expo, and the Back to School Expo. I also attended the SWAT retreat at Lake Yale last summer. I am determined to take what I have learned over the last few years to help end the use of tobacco products and redefine what it means to be cool.
