Yisel Peralta, an 8th grader on the Green Team, was recently named September’s Panther of the Month! Her teachers say, “Yisel is sweet and hardworking. She has a great outlook on life!”
Yisel’s favorite school subject has always been English because she loves writing! She is involved in the school newspaper, the medical college’s Reach-HEI program, and National Junior Honors Society. More importantly, she also enjoys giving back to the community! She volunteered at Geisinger Community Medical Center this past summer and loved every minute of it!
“It’s always important to help people. Even if it’s something little, at least I’m doing something for others in their time of need,” Yisel said. She is living proof that a smile really is worth a thousand words!
Additionally, Yisel is determined to meet her future goals! One goal is to continue helping people by working in the medical field. She hopes to become either a physician’s assistant or an anesthesiologist. However, her biggest ambition is “to never lose myself through all the challenges that life brings and to keep smiling!”
When asked who inspires her most, Yisel responded, “My mom because she is always there for me and supports everything I do! Overall, she is caring, independent, and a great role model.”
Yisel Peralta proves that being hardworking, positive, and determined can lead to success! She is a shining example of a true Panther!
