My name is Elizabet Shvets and I was born in Long Island and raised in Brooklyn, NY. I am attending Leon M. Goldstein and I am in my junior year. Throughout my lifetime I have encountered many experiences and challenges that I have learned to utilize. The Young Peace Builder’s Program is a program to which I have devoted my skills and acquired new ones in. I am very involved in my community and school. I am a member of the Model UN, Key Club, and high school yearbook. I am also highly involved at the Kings Bay YM-YWHA. This organization has aided leadership and confidence growth within me; and the growth process is still ongoing. I have high ambitions for myself in the future and I will use my success to help causes I believe in and worthwhile programs such as the Young Peace Builder’s Program.
