Kayleen Rischmiller - A Save on Foods Amazing Kid!

Kayleen is an amazing kid! She was home schooled through grade nine before effortlessly entering the public school system in grade ten at Stelly's Secondary School. Now a grade twelve student, she has maintained grades of high A's throughout her schooling while being involved in many extracurricular activities. At her school, Kayleen is a leader in the Amnesty International Group, through which she heads the 30 hour famine. She's a World Vision Youth Ambassador and coordinates the school blood drive. She's also involved in the school's leadership program, is on the student council, is a grad executive, and she volunteers twice a month at Brentwood House (a dementia care home). To top it off, she'll be travelling to Nepal in March with the Stelly's Global Perspectives group to help build a library.

She plays piano, guitar, ukulele, and has her black belt in taekwon-do. After graduation, she plans on attending UVic to obtain a degree in biology, and then going to UBC's Island Medical Program. She always has a positive attitude and is willing to take the time to help anyone in need!
