Selfless Senior Spotlight

Isabella Reitz of College & Career High School

“I have always had an unwavering passion for being on the frontlines of change in my community. Throughout the week, I am usually volunteering at Street Safe New Mexico, a nonprofit organization that is dedicated to helping trafficking victims in Albuquerque. I strive to welcome and get to know the women that come to outreach. And between helping to run outreach and Street Safe’s drop-in center, educating the public about the trafficking crisis in New Mexico, and fundraising money, I have also co-founded a social action club at my high school. I help to inform my peers about social issues and spearhead volunteer events throughout the city. I also volunteer my time helping to boost the self-esteem of younger girls and helping to tutor refugees. It is my dream to continue serving my community as a doctor and pursuing my passion for outreach work.”
