It's About Community: Hadley

Hadley (Class of 2016)

The Mariemont Experience would not exist with the community and those that actively participate in the charm and connectedness that embodies our school district community. Hadley is one of those students that goes above and beyond, truly making an impact on all of those around her.

Not only is Hadley an exemplary student (taking honors courses, participating in class discussions and finding enjoyment in the day-to-day life of just being a high school student), she is an exemplary community member. And she has found ways to bring school and community together to make a difference in the world.

As a member of Unified for Uganda, she has participated in bake sales to raise money and created a 10-minute movie for her English class about genocide in Uganda.

"I am a part of Unified for Uganda because I have a strong passion for helping others.Through Mariemont High School I have been given the wonderful opportunity to help provide destitute children in Uganda hope. We are able to give children medicine, meals, education, and mentors which helps them live a better life. Unified for Uganda really gives you a perspective on how blessed we are."

As a member of Key Club, she has volunteered with the Eliminate 5K, which aims to raise money to help eliminate maternal and neonatal tetanus around the world. She is also a student leader at her church.

Hadley is a youth ambassador for Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, giving her the opportunity to advocate for creating a world without type 1 diabetes. As a teen affected by type 1 diabetes, Hadley created Type One Teens, a social group for teen with diabetes. The group does tons of activities throughout the year, including a gala at the Cincinnati Zoo and Botanical Garden.

"I was diagnosed with type one diabetes in 2002 at age 4. Diabetes has always been apart of my life, it is my norm. In December of 2012 I went through diabetes burn out. I was sick of everything diabetes entails. One night I realized that I was not the only one going through the hardships of diabetes. There are many other teenagers in the Greater Cincinnati area with type one diabetes. I decided to create a social group for teenagers with type one diabetes, a group where teenagers can get to know other people facing similar challenges. Mariemont High School has equipped me with an education that has helped me be able to maintain this group and has given me the spirt to never give up. I have received so much support from my teachers and classmates that has helped with the success of this group."
