Leilani says that she wants to finish up outdoor season strong to get her ready for Cross Country which is her most favorite season and she said that attending this camp will help her do great in cross country.
She is excited to start off her 6th grade year in pre-algebra because she was tested at her new middle school in CT and will enter in advanced classes. Leilani is an honor roll student and will be attending The Engineering Science University Magnet School located on the University of New Haven Campus in the fall.
