Souper Bowl of Caring is lucky to have a GREAT Local Youth Advisory Board from all across North Texas.
Meet the Team with the bios they have written for one another:
Joelle Bondoc (Allen, TX)
15 year old Joelle Bondoc is in 10th grade currently attending Allen High. In her spare time she enjoys volunteering at her church and acting, as well as singing at her local theater. Her favorite song is "You are More" by Tenth Avenue North. Joelle plans to attend Baylor University to become a pediatrician and her goals until then include: becoming class president and staying in the top 10 % of her class. While she is an amazing role model for her 13 year old brother Jeremy, her role model is Jacqueline Kennedy because she is the epitome of class and grace. Her church member Sarah Eaton inspired Joelle to check out Super Bowl of Caring. Throughout her community service experiences she has enjoyed the experience of meeting so many new people. In her spare time Joelle volunteers at nursing homes and various schools in her area. By being involved in the Super Bowl of Caring she has learned that her time can be more valuable than money or any other material object. She believes no matter what one does big or small they can make a difference.
Skye Carroll (Justin, TX)
Brieana Degrate (Dallas, TX)
Sarah Eaton (Plano, TX)
Sarah is from Plano, Texas and a junior at John Paul II High School. Having served on the National Youth Advisory Board during the 2013 Souper Bowl of Caring campaign, Sarah is again happy to be involved as an advisor to the Local Youth Advisory Board in 2014.
Brianna Houston (Addison, TX)
Brianna Houston is an ambitious 11th grader at Greenhill High School. She is 16 years old and has been volunteering for as long as she can remember. If she could have any superpower she would love to be able to read peoples minds! As she moves forward in life she hopes to become a physician's assistant but is still unsure. Brianna learned about Souper Bowl of Caring through her schools community service coordinator. She is immensely excited to be a part of the Local Youth Advisory Board and hopes to meet new people and gain new ideas to help make a difference in her community.
Jessica Mathis (Harker Heights, TX)
Jessica Mathis is a 17 year old senior at Harker Heights High School. Though she only has 1 step brother, she has 4 cats to keep her company. Interestingly, Jessica can understand more Spanish than she can speak. She hopes to go to the University of Texas at Austin next year and study to become a medical examiner. Jessica started doing community service work in middle school, and she still enjoys it. She heard about the Souper Bowl of Caring at a student council convention, and decided to apply so that she can become more involved in her community and learn new ideas from other students outside of her immediate community. Jessica hopes to learn about the hunger epidemic in her community, but also in the country. When asked what mark she would like to leave on the world, Jessica responded, "to make sure that there is good in the world."
Essyria Price (Harker Heights, TX)
18 years old and in her senior year at Harker Hieghts, Essyria Price has dreams and goals that would not only make this world a better place but enlighten everyone in it. She dreams of traveling the world and opening hospitals for those who can't afford regular check ups or necessary surgeries. She has 5 siblings and a dog named Papa. She loves to listen to music in her down time. Her favorite artists range from Hunter Hayes to Michael Bublé to One Direction. Essyria first heard about Souper Bowl of Caring when she attended a Student Council convention with her close friend who is also on the Local Youth Advisory Board as well. Essyria is an extremely well rounded student who volunteers through the many clubs she's involved in, dances in her spare time, and plays the clarinet. Through the LYAB she wishes to learn new ways to be a confident and efficient leader and leave this thought on the world: I want people to know that it's not just them in the world. I want people to realize that there are people around the world struggling; I want to have influenced them enough to do something about that.
