D.A.R.E. America Youth Advocacy Board Member from Utah
Hi there! My name is Aspen Brinkerhoff. I live in the small rural town of Benjamin, Utah, and will be a Junior at Spanish Fork High School this year.
I enjoy being involved in the community and making friends wherever I go. I love to help others feel included and connect them with resources that can help them make good choices, be happy, and avoid substances that will hurt themselves and others. This year, I am honored and excited to serve the State of Utah through D.A.R.E.
Young people of today are experiencing incredible stress in their lives and many are making choices that could hurt them now and in their future. I want to help students develop life skills and understand the threat of drugs and how they can harm us. D.A.R.E. can help students cope with stress and make safe and responsible decisions.
I enjoy being active and forming connections in all areas in my life. On a school level, I am a member of the Spanish Fork National Honor Society. I have enjoyed being part of Chess Club, German Club and the Girls Who Code as a Project Leader.
I currently serve as Chair to the Utah Parent Teacher Student Association and was the student representative for Utah on the National PTA Legislative Convention. I have enjoyed helping organize leadership conferences, Day at the Capitol and the State-level Battle of the Bands competitions.
I am a member of OUTRAGE, an organization that stands against substance abuse and advocates for healthy lifestyles. I am also an ambassador for Stand 4 Kind and as well as Hugh O’Brian Youth Leadership.
This past year I served as the Community Development Officer on the Spanish Fork Youth City Council. I have also served as Utah Representative for FEMA Region 8 Youth Preparedness Council, the Utah She-Tech Student Board, and Envision Utah Youth Leadership Committee.
On a personal level, I enjoy getting outdoors, spending time with family and friends, cosplay and fandoms as well as helping others. I love animals, adventure, and travel.
