MEET OUR YOUTH AMBASSADORS
Meet the 2015 Team NPF Chicago Youth Ambassador/Co-Chair of the incredi-BOWLS team fundriaser, Molly Shacter. Hi, my name is Molly Shacter. I am 15 years old and in 10th grade at Krop Senior High School. I am in the Art Magnet Program and enjoy art, music, and spending time with friends and family. I have been touched by psoriasis because two of my cousins have psoriatic arthritis. I have seen the debilitating effects this disease has on my cousins and I was inspired by their involvement and dedication to the National Psoriasis Foundation. I have participated in all of the NPF walks in Aventura and I am excited to continue my involvement with this worthy organization. Please help us find a cure for this disease.
Meet the 2015 Zachariah Geduld Team NPF Chicago Youth Ambassador/Co-Chair of the incredi-BOWLS team fundriaser. Hi my name is Zachraiah Geduld. I am 16 years old in 10th grade at Alonzo and Tracy Mourning Senior High. I am interested in mathematics and science and I am a Lifeguard. I am currently an active member of Future Medical Professionals because I want to be a Surgeon. I am a math peer tutor for Mu Alpha Theta because I enjoy helping people. This passion of helping people has led me to want to help spread the word to educate people about psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis and eventually find a cure for this disease.
