Livia Zhao – President
I’m currently in my senior year at Atholton High School. Through VolunTeens, I’m hoping that I can facilitate change by creating opportunities for teens like me to become more involved in the community they belong to through volunteering. I also wish that VolunTeens can help other high schoolers get one step closer to finding what they’re passionate about. Personally, my passions include biology and the environment, particularly where they intersect with societal studies. In my free time, I like to grow houseplants and manage my garden. I also enjoy listening to/playing music and spending time with my dog Loki.
