Kandace Peroramas is the News & Social Media Junior Editor for Youth Are Awesome. Aware of the impact youth like herself can have on the community, she joined this Youth Central program to showcase and advocate for her love of writing, reading, family, friends, music, and travelling. She also believes the world is constantly changing, so staying informed keeps her sane! As an I.B. student, Kandace values balancing her education and passions, so she enjoys spending her time volunteering or scooping at Village Ice Cream. In the fall, she will be pursuing a Bachelor's Degree in Science with the goal of becoming a pediatrician. All in all, Kandace hopes that through her writing, readers can connect with her in a personal way.
