Katie Leblanc

My name is Katie LeBlanc.  I am an eighteen-year-old graduating senior at Tara High school in Baton Rouge.  Some of my favorite activities/hobbies include dancing, singing, playing wheelchair tennis, and swimming.  In the future, I plan to become a Child-Life Specialist, which is someone who helps young patients understand why they are at the hospital and helps them with their anxieties.  I would like to be a Child-life Specialist because I have had eighteen surgeries and a Child-Life Specialist was always there when I needed them.  I am amazing because I am athletic, confident, smart, and I like to volunteer.
