“There are so many amazing local opportunities to help others, to work towards personal goals, and to push yourself to try new things outside your comfort zone” stated Bowler. “Volunteering for Woodcock Nature Center and Danbury Grassroots Academy, serving on the Ridgefield Youth Commission, working at Deborah Ann’s Sweet Shoppe, and playing on the RHS Varsity Tennis Team are just a few of the incredible experiences that helped push me towards my goals. I am so grateful for the many mentors and coaches that helped support me during this challenge.”
