Kennedy Walls

Johns Creek, Georgia

Kennedy Walls, 18, of Johns Creek, Georgia, a senior at Marist School, started and runs “Aid the Journey,” a nonprofit through which she has assembled and delivered more than 100 first aid and feminine hygiene kits to refugee populations living in nearby Clarkston; along with donating supplies herself, she raised money through fundraisers at her high school. The kits include everything from flashlights, bandages, wound care supplies and antiseptic to diapers and feminine hygiene products.
