Hadley Duquette is passionate about helping others. She is involved in making her community and school more inclusive and accepting of every race, religion, gender, and sexual orientation. Her goals for the year are to learn about new cultures, help communities as much as she can, and make change. My favorite quote is "The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others" by Ghandi because it is exactly why I want to take part in Global Citizen Year.
