Ashleigh Rowsam

Oklahoma

Ashleigh Rowsam, 13, of Kenneth Cooper Middle School in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, turned her summer break into a volunteering opportunity at the Infant Crisis Center. Ashleigh was selected from a group of interested teens to volunteer at the center and perform duties that ranged from simple office work to helping young children. During her service, Ashleigh assisted teen mothers her own age with basic needs like food and clothing. "I realized how lucky for these moms that the Infant Crisis Center was here to help," said Ashleigh.
