Bronze Honor Society Member
My name is Kendra Clark. I've spent my high school years pursuing veterinary science, planning to become a veterinarian. This was a childhood dream of mine. However, I've recently been pulled another direction. I've found a passion helping others who are struggling with mental health and addiction. I became interested in mental health after suffering from depression and anxiety myself, and then watching several of my friends also struggle with mental health and also addiction. Because I know the struggle of dealing with my own mental health, helping others who are also struggling has become a life mission. I find satisfaction in being a positive influence on others who otherwise feel hopeless. I've maintained a 4.0 GPA, even while dealing with my own mental health issues myself. I plan to use this perseverance and my passion for helping others to become a licensed mental health and addiction counselor.
Intended Job Path
I intend to become a mental health and addiction counselor. I want to be someone who offers hope to those who may otherwise feel hopeless.

My hobbies include caring for my wide variety of pets. I currently have a bearded dragon named Cameron, a hamster named Pablo, three pet rats (two hairless and one dumbo rat). Their names are Meredith, Eleanor and baby hugs. Lastly I have a cat named Oddie. He's named Oddie, because, well you guessed it, he's odd. I also enjoy caring for my many house plants, I guess I've always been a nurturer. When I am not nurturing things, whether pets or plants, I enjoy drawing.
