Camden Kiefer, a junior at Hinsdale South High School in Darien, Illinois, is one half of the two-person team that won second prize in this year’s My Impact Challenge. Her favorite classes are engineering and woodworking, but outside of the classroom Camden is also involved in softball, key club, and Best Buddies.
It is clear that all of these involvements have positively influenced her, as she cites her coaches, teachers, and mentors as her biggest motivators. In the same vein, she hopes that other entrants to next year’s My Impact Challenge are able to identify people in their lives that inspire them to do something amazing for their community. Her plans for the future are to attend college for a STEM related major and to travel.
